Career-related Testing: 

Testing is also available, by appointment, through the Center. Students first meet with a counselor to determine which testing instrument might be useful. We offer the Strong Interest Inventory and the Myers Briggs Type Indicator. After taking the instruments, a subsequent appointment is scheduled to go over results. Please call 973-655-5194 if you are interested in making a testing appointment. 

Drop-In Counseling:

Drop-In is also available at the Center in Stone Hall for all students who have a quick question and don't need a regular appointment. Each student is seen for about 15 minutes on a "first come-first served" basis. 

  • Semester Drop-in Hours: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 2:00-4:00 pm
