  • Welcome


    Welcome to the Counseling & Testing Center (CTC) at UWL! The CTC offers free and confidential counseling services to currently enrolled UW-L students. We offer a variety of services in our office, come by 2106 Centennial Hall to check us out.


    Make an Appointment:
    Call or stop in to make an appointment. At the first counseling appointment, the receptionist will ask the student to complete a 2015-16 Client Information Form and read through the 2015-2016 Informed Consent Form.  The client information form will help the counselor understand the student's concerns. (The student may complete these forms in two ways. 1) At home, by clicking on the above links, printing and filling them out, and bringing them to the first appointment. 2) In our office, by arriving at least 15 minutes before the appointment, receiving them from our staff, and completing them.) The student and counselor will then discuss the student's situation and determine what counseling service will be most helpful. The first session takes approximately 20 minutes.

    If you are unable to keep your appointment, please contact the Counseling Center 
    within 24 hours of your appointment time to cancel or reschedule.
