Personal Career Assessments

Career Services at the Student Services Building offers several different career assessments to help a student examine, understand and talk about how his/her interests, personality, values, and skills combine to make him/her who he/she is. While these assessments will not tell a student what major or career is best for him/her, the results can guide him/her toward careers he/she may wish to explore further. For more information, please see our assessment information page. Our staff is available to provide interpretation workshops for academic classes and student groups. Requires that the assessment chosen be taken at least one week in advance to allow us time to generate individual scoring reports. There is a small per student fee for several of the assessments.
