Counseling & Testing
If you are concerned about a student's academic
performance (excessive absences, poor test grades, etc.), and feel this student
could benefit from talking with an advisor or counselor about available
on-campus support services, then please take the time to complete this online Early Alert form. The Counseling and Testing staff will follow up with you
regarding each student referred as an Early Alert, to let you know the outcome
of any contact made.
Do you feel your whole class could benefit
from information on Learning Styles, Time Management, Motivation, or Test
Anxiety? Then invite the Counseling and Testing staff into your classroom for a
presentation on one of these or other related topics. Just complete this Presentation Request Form!
Want to make sure your students are on the right track? Have them meet with an NCTC advisor or counselor to complete an Advising Assignment/Academic Plan for your class! Or refer them to the Career Cruising website (username: nctc, password: gocenter) to take a series of free career assessments, research various types of careers and educational programs, or complete a resume or cover letter. Use this Career Cruising Classroom Activities packet to incorporate career exploration activities into your course!
For students who miss classroom tests, makeup exams are
administered by the Counseling and Testing Center on an appointment basis and
are NOT proctored. Tests are to be brought into or taken out of the Counseling
and Testing Center only by NCTC faculty or staff. Students are required to
schedule an appointment in advance, and to have picture identification in order
INSTRUCTORS (Sending Tests)
the following form and submit to the Counseling and Testing Center at your
campus (in person, via e-mail, or through the courier). Be very specific
regarding the materials a student may use to complete your test. Only the items
specified by you will be allowed in the Testing Center.
You may send us an email to test one student, but if you have
multiple students you need to send us the paper copy with the Testing Referral
form on each copy of the test with the student’s name and testing information
(time allowed, materials, etc.).

CAMPUS FOR STUDENTS RECEIVING TESTING ACCOMMODATIONS THROUGH THE OFFICE FOR
STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES (OSD)*
Students in Corinth who qualify for
testing accommodations will schedule their testing in Room 170, and instructors
will leave exams in this office as well, rather than with the Corinth Counseling
and Testing Center.
However, if you are an instructor at any campus, and have questions
about providing accommodations and how students qualify for services through
the Office for Students with Disabilities (OSD), please visit the OSD website.
Please pick up completed tests from the Counseling and Testing
Center (or the Office for Students with Disabilities in Corinth) during normal
business hours, or we will send the completed tests via NCTC courier to any
other NCTC campus. Tests will be sent to the instructor at the campus they
specify. If an instructor does not have an office on an NCTC campus, or is not able to come on campus to pick up a completed test, then they can request that their exams be scanned and e-mailed directly to them. No tests will be faxed, however, in order to maintain the security of the completed exam.
