Counseling and Testing Services


***At this point in the semester, we are experiencing a high volume of students requesting services and have a limited number of available individual appointments. If you are in need of counseling, please contact us for an initial consultation appointment (ICON). During this appointment, you will meet with a clinician who will work to assist you with your concerns and discuss options for individual counseling, group counseling, TAO, and/or workshops. The clinician may also discuss community referral options.***

Counseling and Testing Services (CTS) provides comprehensive psychological services to University of North Texas students.  CTS consists of two inter-related parts: Counseling Services and Testing Services. 

Through our Counseling Services, we provide free-of-charge services and strive to support the academic success and general well-being of UNT students through individual counseling, group counseling, TAO (Therapist Assisted Online), and workshops, career counseling, consultation, educational programs, and crisis intervention.  Additionally, we provide training for master’s and doctoral-level student clinicians in mental-health related programs.  Our staff consists of licensed clinicians, or clinicians in the process of obtaining licensure, as well as graduate-level trainees and interns.  Counseling Services is in Chestnut Hall, Suite 311, and can be reached at (940) 565-2741.

Through our Testing Services, we provide a wide range of services including traditional admissions testing, computer-based testing, career testing, and other tests.  These tests may be administered free or for a charge, depending on the particular examination.  Of note, Testing Services is in the Gateway Center, Room 140, and can be reached at (940) 369-7617.

We value diversity and strive to provide an environment that is welcoming and accepting to students, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, age, sexual identity, gender identity or expression, citizenship, or physical status.
