The purpose of the present study was to examine Thai college students' perceptions of school psychologist's roles and functions. Participants were 164 undergraduate students in the Faculty of Education at a Thai university. A questionnaire was employed to collect the data. It was found that college students majoring in secondary education rated all roles/functions as significantly more important than those majoring in elementary education (p less than 0.05). Students majoring in secondary education and those majoring in elementary education differed significantly in their expectation on who they thought should serve the various roles and functions of a school psychologist if a school psychologist is not available. Juniors rated all of the roles/functions significantly higher than did sophomores (p less than 0.05). However, juniors and sophomores did not differ significantly (p greater than 0.01) on who they thought should perform the various roles and functions of an unavailable school psychologist. Implications of the findings were also presented in this article. (Contains 4 tables and 2 figures.)
