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.

Due to the Covid-19 campus closure, we do not have any on-campus hours at this time. A new schedule will be evaluated and posted as services return to campus.  Please email for more information and updates.

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.

All out-of-class testing through the Testing Centers is currently being done via Zoom proctoring for your safety. Appointments are arranged through emailing Please email us first before coming to campus as most out-of-class testing is currently being done via Canvas with webcam and lock-down browser.
