We offer confidential counseling services to currently enrolled UWL students. To get started, call or stop in to make an appointment. Read below for information on ADHD Assessments.


  • At your first appointment (20-50 minutes depending on the type of appointment) of the academic year, we will ask you to review and complete forms.  These forms must be completed before meeting with the counselor which will help us understand your concerns and help you understand the counseling process.
  • The counselor at this appointment will discuss your situation and determine what counseling or academic skill building service(s) could be most helpful.  Continued services include individual and group options.


  • To cancel or reschedule an appointment, just call or stop in at least 24 hours before your appointment.   You can also review or cancel an appointment at our confidential and secure UWL MyHealth web portal.


  • Personal Counseling:  to get help with resolving conflicts, solving problems, handling crisis situations, making decisions, understanding self, understanding others, and developing better coping skills.  They also come in to address concerns about their own or a friend's alcohol or drug use, eating disorders, depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts and so much more.


The CTC is not currently offering ADHD assessments, though we provide treatment and consultation regarding a number of student concerns that may overlap with an ADHD diagnosis. If you are interested in pursuing a formal assessment, view this list of community providers who may be able to provide ADHD-related assessments. One of our providers can also meet with you to help you learn what to consider when preparing for an assessment and finding the right provider.

If you have already been diagnosed with ADHD and have questions about accommodations, please contact the ACCESS Center located at 124 Wimberly Hall or visit the ACCESS Center page
