Collapse All Expand All

Fort Lewis College Testing Center requires that appointments are made in advance. To make an appointment, call, email, or stop by the Testing Center 4 days in advance (14 days in advance for tests to be taken during final exam week).   After you make an appointment, your professor will be emailed to approve the date and time that you plan to test.  Your testing appointment should be as close as possible to the in class testing time.  Unfortunately, the testing center cannot guarantee availability without a scheduled appointment.

Students with testing accommodations may take their tests, once approved, in Noble Hall, Room 287, during the testing center’s hours of operation. Appointments are necessary and must be made 4 days prior to the course exam date.  It is highly recommended to make final exam appointments 14 days in advance. The student is responsible for notifying the Professor of his/her plan to take an exam in the FLC Testing Center and for scheduling the appointment with the testing center staff. 

Once an appointment is scheduled, changes to the date and/or time must be approved in writing by your professor.  Please notify the testing center staff once the approval is confirmed.

It is important that every effort is made to be on time for appointments.

Ms. Dian Jenkins, Director of Disability Services, will work with the student to determine if a reasonable accommodation is approved and what the accommodations will include. Fort Lewis College Testing Center will provide the reasonable accommodations based on the letter of accommodation (LOA) issued each semester by Ms. Dian Jenkins.
