3,054: Counseling and Testing

Revised:  July 2012

Counseling: Counseling services are provided to students of the University by professionally trained staff who follow professional, national, and state guidelines for confidentiality.  Services include individual and group counseling, for personal, developmental, vocational, or academic concerns.  Students may refer themselves to the Center, and faculty members are encouraged to refer students who need assistance. The Counseling Services staff members are also involved with outreach activities that include, but are not limited to, personal safety and sexual assault prevention, cultural diversity, mental health, and international student issues.

Services obtained in the Counseling Center are supported by the mandatory counseling fees paid for by full-time students at registration. Part-time students are required to pay the fee at the time they request services.

Testing: As a service to university students and the Northern Nevada community, the university's Counseling Services administers several graduate school admissions and professional licensure and certification examinations.

Currently these include:

  • Graduate Record Examination (GRE) (Subject tests only)
  • Law School Admission Test (LSAT)
  • Pharmacy College Admission Test (PCAT)
  • PRAXIS Series: Teacher Licensure and Certification
  • Miller Analogies Test (MAT)

Counseling Services does not provide test preparation guidance or materials.

Group tutoring services provided by the Tutoring Center, Mathematics Center, and University Writing Center are funded by the Academic Success Fee.
