Assessment Services:

If you are a Gallaudet student and need assessment services, you can stop by the Counseling and Psychological Services office to be placed on our waiting list. You will need to fill out an online form. Within a few weeks, you will be contacted to schedule an Initial Interview. At this interview, the clinician will explain the assessment process to you and tell you approximately how long the wait will be. You also can get information from the clinician about off-campus referrals.
