Optimizing personal effectiveness

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 and 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 disabilities, administering exams such as CLEP, MAT, and proctoring exams for those in distance education courses).
