External/Correspondence Testing

The Assessment Center at Northeast Lakeview College serves the community by providing external and correspondence test proctoring services to students that need exams administered in a secure, proctored environment.

All exams will be administered according to the prescribed regulations set by the home institution or testing organization regarding the use of notes, books, calculators, time limits, passwords, and items necessary to the proctor.  The Assessment Center is located in the Brazos Student Union, room 227. 

Testing Setup

External/correspondence testing appointments can only be made after the NLC Assessment Center has received your test information by regular mail or email. It is the resposibility of the test taker to make arrangements with their home institution/organization to use the Northeast Lakeview College Assessment Center as a proctoring site. 

Any questions or forms that need to be completed can be sent to nlc-assessment@alamo.edu. 

There is a $20 non-refundable fee for each test taken with the NLC Assessment Center.
