Quick Facts
  • Sometimes, the entire LTC is closed to individual testing as a particular class may be using all of our resources. It is very important that you call ahead to assure that we are able to meet your testing needs.
  • Make sure you allow ample time to complete a test.  Generally, during Fall and Winter terms we do not start tests after 7 pm Monday – Thursday or after 2 pm on Friday.  If you feel you can not complete a test by the published closing time, you must schedule an earlier testing time.
  • You must bring a photo ID to the testing center or you will not be allowed to test. If you do not have a photo ID with you please go to Student Services to obtain a waiver form. Student Services is only open until 5pm during the week. After 5pm you must have a photo ID with you in order to test.
  • Paper & pencil or computerized testers need to be at the LTC at least one hour before closing time to receive and begin a test.  For Accuplacer testing, arrive three hours before closing time.  On Fridays, Accuplacer testers must begin their testing before 12 noon.


Test Proctoring for Other Colleges and Universities:

The Center proctors both traditional and on-line tests for other colleges and universities. Testing is arranged on an individual basis through the Center. Students should contact the Center by email or phone to schedule testing prior to arrival. Tests may be mailed, faxed, or emailed (contact information appears below) and should include proctoring information, instructions for returning tests, and, if traditional mail is used, an addressed and stamped return envelope. There is a proctoring fee of $15 per exam administration for non Michigan Community College Virtual Learning Collaborative enrolled students.
