External/Correspondence Testing

The Assessment Center at Northeast Lakeview College continues to serve 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 regarding use of notes, books, calculators, time limit, passwords and items necessary to proctor.  The Assessment Center is located in the Student Commons Building (Building #300) in Suite 227. 

Requesting an Appointment 

External/Correspondence Testing appointments can only be made after the NLC Assessment Center has received your test by regular mail, fax or electronically. No advance appointments are allowed. It is the student's responsibility to make arrangements with their school/institution to use Northeast Lakeview College as a proctoring site. 

To request a proctor, students may visit our External/Correspondence Proctor Request form online or notify the Testing Center via email regarding the particulars of the proctored exam.  Information required includes: name of student, contact email and telephone number, college/university/institution, test due date, and whether the test format is paper-based or electronic or other.  Space is available on the Proctor request form for students who have a special request or any additional questions. 

Once the test materials/password is received, it is the student's responsibility to schedule their exam with our office based on the days and times posted on our website.  All appointments are subject to availability.  Students can confirm receipt of test materials/password via e-mail at: nlc-assessment@alamo.edu or by telephone at 210-486-5401 option 6.  A minimum of two (2) business days' notice is required prior to scheduling an appointment.  Be advised that all testing is stopped five minutes before the end of the business day.
