- External Testing (Correspondence and computer based)
Texas Success Initiative
The Texas Success Initiative (TSI) is a state-mandated program that promotes academic success by ensuring that all students are prepared for college-level coursework.
The TSI assessment measures reading, writing, and mathematics skills to determine students’ readiness to enroll and perform in entry-level academic coursework. Students are required to test and to be advised based on the results of their TSI assessment scores. 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
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 two weeks, during which time the student has focused on areas where they need improvement.
College Level Examination Program (CLEP)
The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) offers students the opportunity to earn college credit in 33 subject areas through 90-minute computer-based tests that assess college-level knowledge. College credits are granted to students who meet qualifying scores. By successfully completing a CLEP exam, students can shorten the time needed to reach their career and educational goals and save money on tuition. The CLEP exam costs $89 (paid to The College Board) with an additional $20 administration fee required at the time of the testing.
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 in the Student Commons Building, room 227 and can be contacted at 210-486-5177. Hours, student guidelines for testing, and more details are available here.

Distance Learning/Instructional Innovation Center (DL/IIC)
Northeast Lakeview College Distance Learning Department
Instructional Innovation Center (IIC)
Many NLC courses provides students the opportunity to use technology enhanced learning strategies for communicating, problem solving, and acquiring information. Through CANVAS, NLC’s learning management system (LMS), students access class content and e-mail, participate in and create blogs, take online quizzes, submit assignments, and check grades. Instructional Innovation Center staff assist faculty with developing well-designed technology enriched courses and assignments to ensure an online environment that is engaging, easy to navigate, and learning driven. While the IIC is not a direct support space for students, on occasion students are invited to IIC programs to expose them to new technology being rolled out and to get their input on equipment ease of use.
The IIC is located on the first floor of the Library (NLIB 123). If you are enrolled in an online or hybrid course, and need support with CANVAS contact us call 210-486-5372 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students who need other technical assistance, including help with software or accessing ACES, can contact NLC IT at email@example.com.
An online course is a course that meets online the majority or all of the time. Internet courses offer the convenience and flexibility of participating in a course without a formal schedule or location. However, an online course might still require coming to campus to take tests, for presentations, or for course orientations.
Prior to enrolling in online courses, students should make sure they are ready for success. Online courses require focus and motivation to meet deadlines and participate fully in the course. Students who are new to online learning are required to complete OLRN 0001 (please see the information regarding OLRN 0001 in this catalog). For a listing of all online courses, visit our website.
A hybrid course is a course that replaces some of the face-to-face classroom sessions with online instruction. Classes do meet on campus for a major portion of time. Students can expect to spend between 50-84% of the class time completing activities outside of class using the Internet and accessing the course shell in CANVAS.
Orientation to Online Learning (OLRN 0001) If this is the first time you have enrolled in an online course at NLC or any of the colleges in the Alamo Colleges District, you are required to register for OLRN 0001 - Orientation to Online Learning prior to the semester start.
Orientation to Online Learning (OLRN 0001) is a free, non-credit online “mini-course”. Although it should take students no more than 3 hours, it does not have to completed in one sitting. The purpose of the course is to provide students with information about best practices in navigating the online classroom and strategies for enhancing learning online. Students will have an opportunity to practice using some of the more common tools used in CANVAS.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org.

PRIORITY REGISTRATION/TIME TICKETING
The following students have prioritized registration during the 46+ hours closed registration period:
- Active Military
- Active Military Dependents, utilizing My Career Advancement Account (MyCAA)
- Veteran Dependents, utilizing military-related Federal or State benefits for education
Priority Registration was designed to offer eligible student veterans, active military, or dependents of each the opportunity to register for their program’s curriculum before most of the general student population. Student veterans can register on the first day of registration for each Fall, Spring, and Summer semester of any academic school year, during their matriculation. This standing applies to student veterans, active military and qualifying dependents who hold a veteran or military status in our student information system.
A student qualifying for priority registration will be able to register for classes and have some of the first-choice selections to all courses offered, to ensure that they stay on track and graduate on time and give additional time to submit Certification Requests.
Student veterans and active military eligible for the Priority Registration Grouping must self-identify at their home college Veterans Affairs or Military Office regardless if they are utilizing military-related Federal or State benefits for education. A student must register and provide supporting documentation identifying veteran or military status to the Veterans Affairs or Military Office at the college. In doing so, the staff will include you in the student veteran and military database so that you can receive crucial military-related information and services provided by the Veterans Engagement area.
Qualifying dependents will become eligible after being certified for military-related educational benefits. Eligible student dependents are those utilizing funding under the Department of Veterans Affairs Educational Benefits, Texas Veterans Commission, or My Career Advancement Account (MyCAA).
Once registered, priority registration carries over from semester to semester for student veterans and active military. A dependent of a veteran or active duty must validate their enrollment each semester by qualifying and utilizing a military-related educational benefit.
A student veteran, active military, or eligible dependent that is not registered in the student database that determines priority registration must register with the Veterans Affairs or Military Office seven calendar days before priority registration begins to be eligible.
Priority registration standing does not eliminate any student from following the protocol of the college academic advising program. Students deemed eligible for Priority Registration MUST still report to their academic advisors, if necessary, for schedule assistance and PIN access prior to registering or being considered for priority registration status. A registration hold will also prevent priority registration. For assistance with resolving a hold, visit your advisor or enrollment services at your home college
