Counseling & Testing Center

The University of Idaho Counseling & Testing Center (CTC), a unit of the Division of Student Affairs, offers students access to a wide range of services and resources including individual, couples and group counseling, crisis intervention, alcohol and substance abuse counseling, stress management and biofeedback counseling, consultation and outreach services,  learning disability and ADHD comprehensive assessments as well as psychiatric services.  Students come to the CTC with a broad range of concerns ranging from adjustment and developmental issues to complex psychological problems and crises.  Students vary in age from late adolescence to mid-life and beyond.  We utilize a brief treatment framework though some clients are seen longer term based on client and training needs.  The CTC is committed to offering services that are inclusive and respectful of all students and to developing multicultural competence in all faculty, staff, and trainees.


The CTC is staffed by seven full-time licensed psychologists and a board certified psychiatrist.  We offer a doctoral internship training program in psychology and have been accredited by the American Psychological Association since 2006.  The CTC also provides practicum training for 6 to 10 graduate students each year.

As the state’s flagship university, the University of Idaho is a land-grant research and teaching institution with an enrollment of over 12,300 students.  The University of Idaho is a nationally-recognized research institution committed to student success and academic excellence that delivers one of the best educational values in the Pacific Northwest.  The primary campus is located in Moscow, Idaho, 85 miles south of Spokane, Washington.


Moscow is a small, friendly university town of 24,000 nestled in the scenic, rolling Palouse hills.  Moscow is known for its quality of life and has been dubbed “the Heart of Arts”.  Located just 8 miles from Washington State University in Pullman, Washington, the two university communities offer residents access to a broad array of arts, cultural, athletic, and scholarly events.  With access to excellent recreational activities in the forests, rivers and lakes of northern Idaho, the quality of life in Moscow is among the best in the Pacific Northwest.  In fact, Men’s Journal named this “hip little city” one of the nation’s five best places to live among college towns.
