To take the Strong Interest Inventory
First, meet with a Career Services career counselor. If your counselor recommends the Strong Interest Inventory, you may schedule a time to take it in Career Services. The fee is $15.00 for current UA Students and $25.00 for Alumni within one year after graduation (bursar's account or credit card only). There is no time limit to take the assessment, but please allow yourself about an hour to answer the 291 questions on the inventory.
Interpretation Counseling Appointments
After completing the Strong Interest Inventory, you will be contacted by a career counselor to schedule an interpretation appointment. The counselor will interpret your report and help you to assess your interest patterns related to careers and academic majors. We will always schedule your appointment as soon as possible, but due to staffing limitations and schedules, there may be up to a two week wait for interpretation appointments.
