College students between the ages of 16 & 40 who are enrolled in a college or university and are being seen by a counselor in the institution's counseling center

According to Dorheim & Ramnath (2011), the MCCI is both reliable and valid for use in universities with diverse populations.

The mean reliability is 0.77 for the current version.
The manual states that test-retest reliability data are still needed.

The Millon College Counseling Inventory

A Review
The Millon College Counseling Inventory (MCCI) is used as a self-report inventory assessment in college counseling centers.
The MCCI is based on Millon's biosocial-learning theory of personality, which conceptualizes behavior in the form of three polarities: Active-passive, pleasure-pain, & self-other.
To assist college counselors in identifying, predicting, and understanding various psychological issues that are common among college students
Various costs for different methods of administration
Free of upfront charges to students
Counseling center likely pays for the initial start up kit which costs $206
Computer start up kit costs $66.50
Scoring costs
The MCCI is only given by college counseling centers, which implies that administrators have completed graduate-level coursework in testing and assessment or have a doctoral degree, which certifies them to give such assessments. No specific qualifications are given by the Mental Measurements Yearbook
Albanese & Cox, 2006
The average correlations across the three sets of scales are comparable: 0.23 for personality scales, 0.21 for expressed concerns scales, and 0.25 for clinical signs scales.
The biosocial-learning theory of personality is new to me, but I'd love to research it further.
Limitations:
The main limitation is also the main strength.
The biosocial-learning theory is used for many of the Millon testing instruments and is a trusted theory, however there is controversy that it should be tested and researched further.
The assessment also does not provide factual evidence that it can identify or predict psychological issues (Albanese & Cox, 2006).

Misuses:
Used outside of the college/university setting
Used for diagnoses
