Counseling & Testing



Office of Counseling and Testing

The Office of Counseling and Testing (OCT)  helps students enhance their academic and personal well being. We support the educational mission of Francis Marion University (FMU) by helping students:

• cope with college and life pressures that threaten persistence in college
• enhance or learn skills that optimize personal effectiveness

We also support the academic goals of FMU by coordinating testing services for the University (e.g., testing accommodations for students with disabilites, administering exams such as CLEP, MAT, and proctoring exams for those in distance education courses)..

We have two full-time therapists, Rebecca Lawson, Ph.D. and Yulaundra Heyward, M.S.   Click here for staff profiles.

The Office of Counseling and Testing is located in the Education Foundation Building adjacent to campus (the building faces U.S. Highway 76 and the street address is 121 S. Evander Drive).  Student Health Services is also located in this building.
