Advising Center (STCM 101) ^Top
NLC subscribes to the concept of “advising as teaching, and utilizes the Advising Syllabus as a tool to communicate expectations of both the student and advisor. The advisors teach students daily through lecture/group advising sessions, and individual consultation with students. Although mandatory advising is required of the First Time In College (FTIC) student, all NLC students are encouraged to meet with an academic advisor on a regular basis.
Academic Advising services provides support for student success by helping students select courses and successfully complete their associate degrees, which is part of the NLC mission. Academic advising services also provide referrals, as needed, to other offices on campus to help ensure student success.

All students must comply with the TSI rule by taking the TSI assessment or meet exemption requirements in order to enroll in courses.
The fee is $32.00 for the complete exam or $12.00 for each section. Students must present a valid picture ID at the time of testing. Results are available immediately following the exam.
TSI Retest Policy

An online course is a course that meets online the majority or all of the time. Online courses offer the convenience and flexibility of participating in a course without a formal schedule or location. However, some online courses do require that you attend campus some of the time (usually less than 15% of the time). You might be required to come to campus to take tests, give or watch presentations, or attend a course orientation.
Prior to enrolling in online courses, make sure that you are ready for success. You should be confident about your own learning style and technology skills. Online courses require you to be self-guided and motivated so you can meet deadlines and participate fully in the course. For more information about online courses, please see the NLC Distance Learning website.
Students who are new to online learning are required to complete the Orientation to Online Learning (OLRN-0001) mini-course. If you are interested in increasing your skills and knowledge about success in online courses, please see the information regarding OLRN-0001 in this catalog.
Students in online courses and programs are supported with student and academic support. More information about these services can be found in the “Library and Academic Support Services” tab under their specific headings within the CANVAS course navigation menu.
Blended or Hybrid Courses
A Blended Course (also referred to as a Hybrid Course) combines traditional lecture, discussion or lab sections within online or other computer-based learning. Hybrid courses move a significant part of the course work to the computer or Internet, which reduces the amount of time you will spend in a traditional face-to-face classroom setting.
Orientation to Internet (OLRN 0001)
The Orientation to Online Learning (OLRN-0001) is a no-fee, no-credit “mini-course” required of students who are new to online learning at NLC or any of the colleges of the Alamo Colleges District. OLRN-0001 will provide students with baskic skills that impact success in online courses as well as orient students to the basics of the CANVAS learning management system. For more information about OLRN-0001, please see the NLC Distance Learning website.
NLC complies with all of the requirements of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). We are committed to protecting the privacy of a student’s educational record regardless of delivery method. The Registrar is the point of contact for all FERPA related issues, and all employees are informed and trained of their responsibilities of unauthorized release of confidential records or information. Because an online environment creates a record of student activity, it is subject to FERPA privacy rights, unlike verbal exchanges in a physical classroom.
IDENTITY VERIFICATION IN DISTANCE LEARNING COURSES
BioSig-ID, the identity verification process for online courses, protects student’s privacy through the use of a secure portal, with a secure login and student-selected password. In addition, Northeast Lakeview College uses an enabling technology that is used to verify the identity of online students. For more information on BioSig-ID, please contact your online course instructor. NLC does not require any additional fees or charges for verification of student identity at this time.
Faculty and staff understand and carry out a commitment to confidentiality, integrity, and security to protect the privacy of students who participate in distance learning activities. Students’ records are kept private by the instructor, except in cases where academic staff or administration access the course, with legitimate educational interest under FERPA guidelines.
In order to maintain course security and protect student privacy, faculty do not access or attempt to access another employee’s or student’s account without authorization as described in the Appropriate Use of Information Technology District Policy C.1.9.
In order to maintain confidentiality, portal login passwords are generated by the student and any password reset is completed through “secret question” protocol. It is the students’ responsibility to keep their password confidential as stated in Student Code of Conduct District Procedure F.4.2.1 and Appropriate Use of Information Technology Resources District Policy C.1.9. Only work submitted to open forums, like discussion boards, can be accessed by other students; other assignments, grades and correspondence are not viewable by other students.
Early Alert and Intervention
Early Alert is designed to promote student success and retention by serving as a resource tool to identify students experiencing academic difficulties. As the first level intervention, faculty encourages students to meet with the instructor to discuss and address the academic concerns. Interventions may include tutoring, advising, study strategies, and referrals to advisors or college and community services and resources.
Community of Interest: Male Issues
SPCH1315 Public Speaking
Taught by Dr. Archie Wortham, the course will cover the same material as other sections of Public Speaking but will take opportunities to focus discussion and speeches on male images, both perceived and real. Class will involve watching two movies about male issues, journaling of topics chosen by the students and researching these topics for open discussion. *This class is open to all students, but will have special content focused on male issues* Please contact Dr. Wortham with any questions: email@example.com.

Students receive information literacy instruction that is tailored to a specific assignment or to a specific course outcome in face-to-face and online classes. Librarians partner with your classroom faculty in developing and building appropriate instruction.

Students have a specific number of online tutoring hours available to them each semester and can access them through their courses in CANVAS.
The ASC is located on the second floor of the library in NLIB214. For questions, please contact the ASC staff at 210-486-5365. Hours, tutoring schedules, and more details are available on the ASC LibGuide located at https://www.alamo.edu/nlc/experience-nlc/current-students/tools-for-school/tutoring-services/.
The Course Exam Center (CEC) offers proctoring for:
- Make-up testing for Alamo Colleges District students who miss an exam date
- Testing for online Alamo Colleges courses that need a physical testing site
- Special accommodation testing for students who have proper documentation
Before students can take an exam at the CEC, their instructor has to first arrange for test proctoring by submitting an Exam Form. The CEC only administers exams that are accompanied by a Exam Form containing proctoring guidelines from the instructor. After an instructor submits a Exam Form, a student may take the exam at the CEC by: 1) arriving with adequate time to complete the exam within the hours of operation, 2) bringing all necessary testing materials, and 3) presenting a valid photo ID. During high use times like midterms and final examinations, it is important that students not wait until the last hour to try and test. The Center gets very busy and has limited testing kiosks. Please plan accordingly.
The CEC is located on the second floor the library in NLIB212 and can be contacted at 210-486-5378. Hours, student guidelines for testing, and more details are available here. http://nlclibrary.libguides.com/asc
Please note that external tests outside of NLC and the Alamo Colleges District, such as placement tests, TSI, THEA, and CLEP tests are administered at the Assessment Center located in the Student Commons.
