The main objective of this research was to determine the effect of systematic motivational counseling (SMC) method on university students' academic achievement motivation and test anxiety. 30 students were randomly chosen and were divided into two control and intervention groups. Both groups responded to the inventory of school motivation and test anxiety questionnaires as the pretest. At first, 15 sessions of systematic motivational counseling were held for the intervention group and then both groups recompleted the mentioned questionnaires as the post test. After gathering the data, results were analyzed through statistical methods such as Analyzing Co-variance (ANCVOVA) and Multiple Analyzing Covariance (MANCOVA).Results indicated that SMC has increased the linear combination of depended variables (motivational anxiety) by 83/9% (F-64/936, P<0.05). Moreover, SMC has increased the level of academic motivation to 73% (F-70.182, P<0.05) and has decreased test anxiety to 62% (F-43.707, P<0.05). According to the results, it could be concluded that Systematic Motivational Counseling (SMC) would have an effect on increasing the academic achievement motivation and decreasing test anxiety.
