The SCC subscribes to an online screening program intended to help our students get some ideas about issues that can seriously affect their lives. Each screening will take between 4 and 5 minutes to complete, and the results can be printed for your reference. Just remember – the results you get are NOT intended to indicate a diagnosis. They are intended to start you thinking about feelings, behaviors and thoughts that may be causing you concern. The questions asked and how you answer make a good starting point for conversation with an SCC professional.

Start the online screenings.  Type the keyword "Tarleton" at the prompt. If you have any questions about the screening, please call the Counseling Center at 968-9044.

Please be assured: online screenings are completely confidential. We do not collect any unique identifying information such as names, email addresses or IP addresses. No one will see your individual results except you.
