Student Services offers a broad range of services and resources to support the student from their first semester at the College through graduation. The offices and centers assist students in achieving their academic goals and strive to enhance students’ personal, intellectual and social development through a broad range of programs and services. Students have access to a comprehensive system of services that includes assessment of academic needs, orientation, transfer, and career fairs, academic and personal counseling, co-curricular activities, services for international students, services for students with disabilities, learning and library resources, computer labs, the College bookstore and distance learning.

 

Assessment Center (STCM 227)

^Top

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 should contact the Center at 210-486-5401, option 6  or visit the website for a current test schedule and to schedule their appointment.  A valid picture ID is required for all provided exams.

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)

Accuplacer

The Accuplacer is a State approved exam administered by Northeast Lakeview College to measure basic entry-level skills. The Accuplacer is a computerized test that will evaluate reading, writing, and math skills to determine placement into college courses.  Reading, writing, and fundamental mathematics 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.  Testing is offered by appointment Monday through Thursday and the first Saturday of each month.  The exam fee is $29 if tested 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 Policy
Students are allowed to retest on the next available test date.  This includes retesting all parts, one or multiple parts.

For all second or subsequent retests, we recommend the student retest after 2 weeks or after they have attached a formal college test prep intervention program (e.g. PASS) to improve their current test scores.

 Credit by Examination

Northeast Lakeview College provides an opportunity for students to obtain college credit courses in areas that they may have attained college-level proficiency. When students take the CLEP test for a certain course, they can receive credit and are exempt from that particular class. By successfully completing CLEP tests, students can shorten the time needed to reach their career and educational goals.  The CLEP exam costs $80 (paid to The College Board) with an additional $15 administration fee required at the time of the test.

CLEP Testing Days/Hours (By appointment only):
 
Tuesdays: 10:00 am and 2:00 pm
Thursday: 10:00 am and 4:30pm
Friday: 2:00pm
First Saturday of the month: 10:00 am
By appointment only.

Click here for additional information on CLEP/AP policies.

External Testing

Correspondence exams may be proctored by appointment only at Northeast Lakeview College. There is a $20 fee per exam for the service and the Assessment Center requests that students confirm arrival of the exam materials 24 hours prior to appointment time. Students are required to present a valid picture ID. Any associated postage fees required to return exam documents to the home institution will be the responsibility of the home institution or the student. Northeast Lakeview College will not incur any associated postal fees.

While we buyback textbooks year round, the best time to sell books back is during the last two weeks of each semester.

 RETURN INFORMATION

Final return dates for each semester are printed at the bottom of your original receipt.  The original receipt is required for returns, refunds and exchanges. The textbooks must be in original purchased condition to receive a refund. Please contact us if you have any questions about returns.

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 inside front window, passengers’ 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 Police Department 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.

As the first level intervention, faculty encourages students to meet with the instructor to discuss and address the academic concerns.   Students receiving multiple alerts are contacted by a Student Success team member for a second level intervention to assess issues that may negatively impact overall student success.  Interventions may include tutoring, advising, study strategies, and referrals to college and community services and resources.

The ATC only administers exams that are accompanied by a Testing Form containing proctoring guidelines from the instructor. After an instructor submits a Testing Form, a student may take the exam at the ATC 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 ATC is located on the second floor the library in NLIB212 and can be contacted at 486-5378. Hours, student guidelines for testing, and more details are available here. http://nlclibrary.libguides.com/asc

 

Please note that external tests from outside the Alamo Colleges, placement tests, TSI, THEA, and CLEP tests are administered at the Assessment Center located in the Student Commons.

The Welcome and Advising Center is a comprehensive One-Stop service 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 TSI Assessment and college placement standards have been completed. Group advising appointments are available Monday through Friday and the first Saturday of the month.

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
