Online Exams

Students are welcome to use the Testing and Assessment Center for online exams, even if the exam does not require proctoring.  Simply stop at the LCCC Wellington Center and ask the staff to be admitted to the lab.  Students may also assess online with the ANGEL Secure Browser, if required for your course.  Please have your instructor make arrangements with our staff for your assessment in advance.

Proctored Exams

The LCCC Wellington Center is pleased to administer a proctored exam to any student.  Students should have their instructor make arrangements with the LCCC Wellington Center prior to your arrival.  There is no fee for LCCC students and University Partnership students (when taking an exam related to their UP program).

A nominal fee is assessed for proctored exams that are not directly associated with LCCC or the University Partnership.  For more information on the fees and registration for a proctored exam, click here.
