The role of school psychology has expanded into other educational settings, such as Higher Education. Seeking to contribute to this expansion, had as objectives to map the Institutions of Higher Education of the Federal District and school psychologists who have knowledge and examine the work done. Eight institutions participated with the school psychologist and had, on the Internet, information about the School Psychology Services. The qualitative analysis of this information indicated that these services are based on attention to difficulties experienced by students and promoting academic and human development, individual and collective conduct activities, both traditional and emergent nature. Among the latter, carry out actions of personal and professional development, institutional assessment and monitoring of graduates. The role of School Psychology in Higher Education is building on preventive measures, institutional and broader than that historically characterized the educational intervention at this level.
