Our Mission

CTS consists of two inter-related parts: The Counseling Center and Testing Services. We exist to serve the students and community of UNT in support of the mission of the University. Through our Counseling Center services, we strive to support the academic success and general well-being of UNT students through professional counseling, career counseling, consultation, mental-health screenings, educational programs and self-help resources as well as a referral services.

We offer to consult with Students, Parents, Faculty and Staff who may be concerned about a UNT student (while still respecting the confidentiality of our clients). With client permission, we often work closely with physicians and psychiatrists, the Career Center,Office of Disability Accommodation, and many other helpful resources in order to provide the best overall care. We value diversity and students can expect to be treated in a respectful and accepting manner.

Testing Services provides a wide range of services including traditional admissions testing, computer-based testing, career testing, and other tests. Please peruse the Counseling and Testing Services site to learn more about the specifics of our services, our privacy policy, how to access each service we offer and how to get the most from them. If you have additional questions regarding testing, please call (940) 565-2735.

Counseling services are provided exclusively to current UNT students. Short-term developmentally-focused counseling is free at the time of service, as we are funded through the Student Service Fee that is paid by currently enrolled students. Counseling services are as confidential as the law allows and are not part of your academic or university record.

All of our counselors are licensed professionals or are advanced graduate students being trained under close supervision. Our short-term counseling/therapy model combined with the high demand from such a large student body (36,000) requires we set a maximum session limit. That limit is eight (8) sessions maximum per academic year, but the number received is determined with your counselor. This model fits the vast majority of student's issues, and the average number of individual counseling sessions used by UNT students is between 3–4 sessions. The cost of counseling services are funded by the fees paid by currently enrolled UNT students, therefore there is not a fee paid at the time of service.
