IQ Testing

For application to GATE programs, an IQ test is acceptable in place of an ACT or SAT test.

The MSU Psychological Clinic, located on-campus, offers comprehensive IQ assessments for students who wish to apply for a GATE program.

  • Assessments are typically 2-3 hours and include a brief interview, IQ testing (WISC), and a social-emotional screen.
  • A 20- to 30-minute telephone screening is required to schedule an appointment.
  • The cost varies based on services requested and rendered,and financial aid to cover some of the cost may be available. 
  • After testing is complete, assessment reports documenting test results are mailed to parents or discussed at an optional face-to-face feedback session.

Additionally, the clinic administers more extensive evaluations along with an array of therapeutic services for gifted children and their families.
