Student Success Center Faculty Testing Guidelines

Faculty may initiate testing services with the Student Success Center by contacting the Student Success Center at (231) 995-2134 or

Each test or set of tests submitted to the Center must be submitted with a "Test Proctoring Information" sheet.

If your test is FOR AN NMC CLASS:

If your test is FOR A non-NMC CLASS:

MCCVLC Test Proctor Request Form »

MCCVLC Test Proctor Request Form is to be completed for courses available through the VLC. Please complete thoroughly. Test monitors need your clearly stated directions in order to correctly administer your exam(s).

Tests may be sent to the Center via U.S. Postal Service to:

Student Success Center
Northwestern Michigan College
1701 East Front Street
Traverse City, MI 49686

Tests can also be hand delivered or sent through campus mail. Tests can be faxed in an emergency but many times they are difficult to read.

  1. Completed tests from NMC can be returned via interoffice mail or the instructor can pick up from the Center office. For MCCVLC tests, provide a self-addressed stamped envelope or mailing address. For tests received outside of NMC or the MCCVLC, please provide a self-addressed stamped envelope for return of the completed test(s).
  2. Please do not send an entire class to the Center for testing at the same time. We may not be able to ensure enough space.
  3. You will be setting the start and end test dates. These dates will be adhered to and tests not completed will be returned immediately.
  4. End test dates should close at the end of the business day, as opposed to various times during the day. Completed tests cannot be collected and returned at specified times of the day but will be collected and mailed at the close of each day.
  5. Please provide testing instructions to your students. It is helpful, if at minimum, that you verbally inform students what your testing parameters will be, that they will need to present a photo ID when requesting the test in the Center, and that all coats, hats, backpacks, etc. will have to be left with the test proctor.
  6. If students violate testing guidelines established by the instructor and/or Student Success Center, the Student Success Center reserves the right to collect the test before the student has completed it. The instructor will be informed of the guideline violated.
