STRONG Interest Inventory

What is the STRONG Interest Inventory?

It is one of the most well respected and widely used assessment tools on college campuses nationwide. By comparing students' results with those of people like them who have successfully found satisfying careers, Career Coordinators can help students choose an appropriate degree program that suits their interests and assist in discovering the career options that will be available to them.

Do I need an appointment to take the STRONG?

No, you do not need an appointment to take the STRONG. You can drop by the Career Development Office in Madison Hall 111 anytime between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm to take it. The test itself should take around 30 minutes to complete. Upon completion, we will schedule a time for you to come back and meet with a STRONG Interest Inventory Certified Coordinator who can interpret the results and discuss the outcome of the inventory with you.

Are there any fees associated with taking the STRONG?

No, there is no charge for currently enrolled UAHuntsville students and alumni.
