The Assessment Center is located on the second floor of the Student Commons Building (STCM 227) and provides a range of services to meet the needs of students attending Northeast Lakeview College. The Center provides a quiet, conducive testing environment with flexible hours to accommodate day, evening and weekend students. Students must arrive one hour before the Testing Center is scheduled to close and should contact the Center at 210-486-5401, option 6  or visit the website for a current test schedule.

Testing Services

The Assessment Center provides a board range of testing services to meet the needs of its diverse student population:

  • THEA (Internet Based Testing)
  • Accuplacer
  • Credit by exam (CLEP)
  • External Testing (Correspondence and computer based)

THEA-IBT Information

The THEA - IBT is a computerized test that will evaluate reading, writing, and math skills to determine placement into college courses. Reading, writing and fundamental mathematical skills have been identified as the important entry-level skills for college transition. The identification and adherence to basic skills in these three areas are essential to insure that students enter Northeast Lakeview College with the academic preparation necessary for success.  The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board has approved the THEA-IBT as an exam for Texas Success Initiative (TSI) required assessment testing.  
Students must present two forms of identification at the time of testing.  Your primary ID must include a photo.  THEA-IBT testing is by appointment only.  Students have four hours to complete the test and are encouraged to study and complete a practice test prior to taking the test.  The exam fee is $29 if taking either the entire test or sections only.  For information on practice tests, payment, and appointment times, visit Northeast Lakeview College’s Assessment Center website.  Results are available immediately following the exam.

Accuplacer

The Accuplacer is a State approved exam administered by Northeast Lakeview College to measure basic entry-level skills. The Accuplacer is available to students who have previously tested within the last three years.  Testing is on a walk-in basis Monday through Friday and by appointment the first Saturday of each month. The exam fee is $29 if retested as a whole or $10 for each section.  Students must present a valid picture ID at the time of testing.  Results are available immediately following the exam.

Assessment Retest Police
Students are allowed to retest after 2 weeks.  This includes retesting all parts, one or multiple parts.   If a student wishes to retest a second or subsequent time, they may retest after 2 weeks if they have attended a formal college test prep intervention program; otherwise, a second or subsequent retest requires a wait time of 6 weeks.

Northeast Lakeview College provides an opportunity for students to obtain college credit courses in areas that they may have attained college-level proficiency.

Campus Parking Regulations

^Top

Every student attending classes operating a motor vehicle and parking on the College campus must purchase and properly display a “Student Parking Registration.”

To be valid, the Parking Registration must be affixed to the outside rear window, drivers’ side. A registration placed in any other manner will be classified as “No Registration.” Parking registrations are valid for one (1) academic year (September 1 through August 31.)

The purchase of a Parking Registration DOES NOT guarantee the student a parking space on the College campus.

It is imperative that the student operating a motor vehicle obtains a copy of the Traffic and Parking Rules and Regulations at the time he or she purchases the parking registration. This will minimize misunderstandings and penalties involving the issuance of parking citations.

The Alamo Colleges Department of Public Safety Officers are commissioned Peace Officers vested with the power and authority to issue traffic citations and summons and to arrest and file charges in the City or Justice of the Peace Courts. A student found in violation of the Traffic and Parking Rules and Regulations will be issued a Traffic/Parking Citation. Each Campus citation is $12 if paid within ten (10) days of the issue date on the citation. Fines shall be paid at the Business Office or mailed to the address on the citation. If not paid within ten (10) days of the issue date on the citation, the fine increases to $18.

Early Alert Program

 The Early Alert Program is an outreach program that focuses on students who are experiencing academic and/or personal difficulties and are in need of outside intervention to help ensure their best chance for academic success in college. Advisors and instructors partner to identify any barriers that may hinder a student’s chance for academic success, such as, but not limited to: attendance, participation, missing assignments, tardiness, etc. The Early Alert Program is initiated when a faculty member identifies students who are experiencing academic and/or personal difficulties early in the semester or at the first sign of academic difficulty. Our goal is to increase Student Success by initiating early contact with students, thus providing resourceful information and proactive services early in the semester. Northeast Lakeview College faculty and staff are supportive, directive, resourceful, and committed to our students’ overall success, and the Early Alert Program is designed to support their efforts.

Learning Communities

^Top

Learning communities at NLC can be presented in a variety of ways, including interdisciplinary, where subjects generally taught as individual courses are combined into one integrated course. The learning communities may be team-taught by two or more faculty and their disciplinary perspectives are integrated, or the learning communities may be theme-based where a complex contemporary intellectual inquiry from several different  perspectives is examined collaboratively. In all cases, both faculty and students have the chance to learn from, and teach, each other.

Accelerated Learning 

Accelerated learning communities for developmental education (DE) courses are designed to decrease the amount of time students spend in their DE program.  Accleration may include taking courses in a condensed amount of time, pairing courses, or linking courses.  Below are the definitions of the different types of communities fo help you pick the course that’s right for you:

Linked Courses are considered Flex I and II courses that run in two 8 week sessions.  Students who sign up for Flex I must also enroll in Flex II.  This option gives students the opportunity to move through two levels of DE instruction in one semester.

Paired Courses are two separate content courses with two separate instructors.  These courses run the full 16 weeks but allow students to move as cohort/learning community from on class to the other.

New student veterans are required to declare a major and provide official transcripts from every institution attended, including appropriate military transcripts (AARTs for Army, SMART for Marine Corps and Navy and CCAF for Air Force).

Students using VA benefits must notify the Office of Veterans Affairs of any adds, drops, course, or program changes.

NOTE:  You must notify the Office of Veteran Services each semester/term regarding courses in which you are enrolled. 

             Veterans information at Northeast Lakeview College is available in Student Commons (STCM, RM 101). 

Welcome/Advising Center

The Welcome and Advising Center is a comprehensive One-Stop designed to assist students with the enrollment process at Northeast Lakeview College. The Staff is cross-trained in all enrollment services areas to include admissions, advising, assessment, registration, and residency. In addition, student service personnel administer career, transfer services, and the Early Alert program.

Initial academic advising for new students is conducted through a mandatory group advising seminar. Students must register for a group advising seminar after all required admissions credentials have been received and the THEA test has been completed. Group advising appointments are available Monday through Saturday in classroom format.

Returning students have an option of attending a group advising session or may see an advisor for individualized academic guidance prior to registration. Students are encouraged to see an advisor whenever they encounter an academic problem or contemplate a change in educational goals.

For additional information, students should contact the Welcome/Advising Center at 210-486-5401, option 4 or email nlc-nlcadmin@alamo.edu
