Need a Test Proctored? 

LCC offers testing services in a secure, quiet environment for students who cannot take a scheduled class exam. This has proven to be a valuable service as it is sometimes difficult to coordinate a time when a student and instructor can meet for a monitored exam outside of class.

In addition, a student taking an online or traditional course at institutions other than LCC may also arrange for testing times.

Please note that the Learning Center cannot accommodate entire classes. This also means that instructors cannot use the testing services as a substitute for regular in-class exams.

To schedule an exam time, the student must contact the Learning Center at least 24-hours in advance.

NOTE: Drop-in services cannot be accommodated. This means that an instructor cannot drop off  an exam and have students drop in during testing hours to take an exam without making an appointment at least 24-hours in advance.  Instructors must provide to the proctor the name of the student(s), the academic program or discipline, and the specific instructions for the exam.

Reserve a group study room for Level I, Library or Level II, Learning Center
