Psychological Assessment


In an effort to assist Liberty University’s (LU) Office of Disability Accommodation Support (ODAS), we offer assessments for local LU students in need of academic accommodations. This level of testing is limited to ADHD and/or mild-to-moderate mood disorders. There is no cost for this service, and students seeking more extensive testing for disorders outside this limited scope are encouraged to find a provider off campus.


ADHD & Mood Disorder Assessment

Those interested in an assessment for possible ADHD or a mood disorder first need to visit the ODAS office on the ground floor of DeMoss Hall. Staff there will determine if a referral for testing should be provided, at which time the student would need to bring this form to our office in Green Hall (#1830). Some initial paperwork is then completed in addition to the ODAS referral, and the student will be notified once an opening becomes available that fits his/her schedule. Note: Given the unpredictable number of students seeking this service, it may take several weeks before an opening is available.

Who Oversees Assessments?

Psychological assessments are overseen by a licensed clinician but may be administered by a post-graduate resident or graduate student completing his/her internship at Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS). In cases where a student meets criteria for a diagnosis, the final report will be reviewed and endorsed by a licensed supervisor and given to the student who is then able to file for accommodations with ODAS.

Career Assessments

Career-Focused Insight

CAPS also offers psychological assessments, interpretation, and counseling directed at helping students gain insight in career-focused aspects of themselves and their occupational interests. This instrumentation is designed to help in the areas of career exploration, determining educational paths and opportunities, and occupational pursuits. Results of instrumentation and counseling can be shared with LU’s Career Services team in a joint venture to support students through the entire process; beginning with self-exploration and culminating with practical application of the information and insight gained throughout.

Types of Career Assessments

Career oriented psychological assessments include the Strong’s Interest Inventory, O*Net’s Interest Profiler and Work Importance Locator, and interpretation of Holland Codes. Use and interpretation of assessments for mild-to-moderate mood disorders can be utilized during the process as is determined by the assessment team and needs of the student.
