Exam Lab: Guidelines

Exam Lab Guidelines

The Exam Lab administers make-up exams, exams for students with testing accommodations, exams from other institutions, distance learning exams, and professional licensure and certification exams. There is a $25 proctor fee for test takers who are not LCCC students, students from WY colleges or UW, or military personnel.  

Please remember these general guidelines:

  • All test takers are expected to adhere to LCCC’s Student Code of Conduct. Any activity that raises a concern with the proctor will be reported to your instructor.
  • When checking in at the Proctor Station in the Lobby of PF 119, test takers will read and sign the Honor Code Policy.  All students taking an LCCC exam will need to provide their instructor’s name, course name, course number, section number, and exam name. 
  • All testers must also present a valid photo ID (driver’s license, student ID, etc.). Exam Lab personnel will not administer an exam to a student without a photo ID and course/exam information. For any of identification issues, the instructor will be notified immediately and, if necessary, Campus Security will be contacted.
  • All fees are expected to be paid before a test taker begins an exam.  Cash, check and credit card are accepted.
  • Only exam takers are permitted in the Exam Lab; no children or unauthorized guests (persons meeting DSS identified needs are excepted).
  • Cell phones and other technology, unless pre-approved, are not allowed. Turn off and stow in a locker all electronic devices, including watches and wearable technology (Apple Watch, etc.).
  • Hats, coats, scarves, gloves, backpacks, wallets, purses, keys, and all other personal items must be stowed in lockers.
  • Calculators and testing supplies, including approved note cards and formula sheets, will be examined before use.
  • Once an exam has started, students must remain in the Exam Lab until completion. Leaving the lab during the exam may result in termination of the exam.
  • Exams will not be started unless there is enough time allowed to complete the exam.  For example, if an exam is allowed two hours, it must be started at least two hours before closing time.
  • Food and drink are not allowed in the Exam Lab unless there is an approved accommodation. 
  • Exam proctors may walk through the Exam Lab or observe test takers through video surveillance system at any time during test taking. Test takers are observed throughout the exam by various observation methods.
  • Exams will be collected at closing time regardless of completion.
  • At the completion of the exam, sign out with the Exam Lab proctor. All scratch paper and testing materials must be turned in to the proctor. 


Instructor Guidelines
