Testing Center

Do you need to take an out-of-class test? The LMC Testing Center provides testing outside of classroom testing, including health sciences testing. Learn more below about placement and out-of-class testing.

Out-of-Class Testing for Current Students

Out-of-class testing includes course testing outside of scheduled class periods and may also include online course testing if instructors require proctored testing in the Testing Center or at another approved location.

We require that students coming in to take out-of-class tests reserve a seat by scheduling an appointment online.

NOTE: Lake Michigan College administers exams for other colleges by appointment only; there is a $25 fee per test. Please call (269) 927-6173 or email assessmentcenter@lakemichigancollege.edu for more information.

Out-of-class tests are course exams students take outside of regular class meetings.

  • If you are taking out-of-class tests, you are required to reserve a seat by clicking on the "book now" link below and scheduling an appointment.
  • You must register the first time you schedule online, creating an easy-to-remember login and password.
  • Login, select the day you wish to test, select your appointment time, then finalize your appointment.
  • If your class is not listed, choose “Out-of-Class Test;” in the notes section, record the instructor and test for which you are scheduling.
  • Health Science applicant tests are considered out-of-class tests. Applicants should check their application packets for information on tests required, how to register/pay for required tests, where to find review materials, and locations for testing. Applicants can also call the Testing Center at (269) 927-6173 for information. Seat reservations are required at all campus locations.

Students are responsible for knowing their instructor’s name, the name of their class, and the name of the test they wish to take. Students’ cell phones must be off and put away while testing. If a cell phone is on or accessed while student is testing, the test will be terminated, the student will be asked to leave, and the student’s instructor will be notified. Students must bring a picture ID in order to test; no exceptions will be made. Any picture ID is acceptable, including a driver’s license. Students must notify instructors at least 48 hours in advance if they wish to test at a campus other than their “home” campus. 

Here is what you need to know before you test:

  • Know your instructor's name, class name, and the name of the test you wish to take.
  • Let your instructor know 48 hours in advance if you plan to test at a campus other than your "home" campus.
  • Bring a photo ID, e.g. driver's license, student ID, etc.
  • Turn off and put away your cell phone. If your cell phone is on or accessed while you are testing, your test will be terminated and your instructor will be notified.
  • Electronic devices, other than approved calculators, must be turned off and put away while testing.
  • Schedule your test so you have enough time to complete it before the testing center's closing time.
