Mandated Assessment Consultations
professionals assist University administrators by providing assessment
of students who have violated the University judicial code. The
conditions precipitating a CAPS assessment typically entail instances
where it is thought that a student's psychological condition has
significantly contributed to his/her misbehavior. Additionally,
assessments may be mandated when there is concern that a student
may be at risk for developing a more acute drug or alcohol use problem
or when a student's condition may entail danger to self or others.
Assessment results are shared with University administrators with
the intent of identifying whether or not follow-up treatment is
indicated, as well as whether a student may pose any threat to the
stability of the University community.
assessment recommendations entail follow-up psychotherapy and/or
psychiatric treatment, CAPS professionals will facilitate a student's
obtaining appropriate clinical services. Sometimes psychological
treatment may be administratively mandated as a condition of a student's
continued enrollment. In these instances, CAPS professionals may
take on a case manager role in conveying appropriate information
regarding a student's condition to the University administration.
