Counseling & Testing Center

The counselors and advisors of this office provide the academic advising students need in order to formalize education and/or vocational objectives, understand the college admissions process, research college majors and transferability of coursework, and assist with resolving personal problems which are impacting a student’s academic performance.

As its name implies, this office also serves as the center for administering tests, including the American College TEST (ACT), the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) tests for course credit, high school equivalency tests of the General Educational Development (GED) program, the Texas higher Education Assessment (THEA), COMPASS, and the new statewide TSI Assessment to determine placement in college courses.

Personal counseling is available to students on a limited basis with referral to community and private resources when appropriate.
