Students are encouraged to take advantage of the many resources available to them at Lindsey Wilson College. The following services are offered to students through the Academic Success Center:

CLEP Testing

The CLEP (College-Level Examination Program) test is a series of exams that allows students to demonstrate their knowledge in various subjects. The CLEP test allows students to receive college credit for what they know, no matter where it was learned. The cost of each CLEP exam is $80. Pre-registration is necessary; forms are available from the tutor coordinator. For more information on the CLEP, visit CLEP Online.

Freshman Advisors

Freshman academic advisors work closely with students throughout their first year in college, assisting them through course selection and registration as well as providing information, referrals and coordination with campus services. The freshman academic advisor's primary duty is to teach freshman seminar, keep close contact with first-year students and monitor class attendance and student performance, from enrollment to the selection of a major.

Peer Tutoring

Peer tutoring is a process whereby students that are strong in a particular subject tutor students that are having difficulty in that subject. Tutoring requests typically last for one semester, but "quick help" requests may also be made for one-time appointments with a tutor. Students who study in groups often find that they learn more quickly and easily than when they study alone. Adding a tutor who has already succeeded in a class increases the likelihood that group members will achieve success. For more information on receiving tutoring or becoming a peer tutor, contact the Tutor Coordinator, Maretta Garner.

Placement Testing

All students within one year removed from high school must submit his/her results of the American College Test (ACT) or the Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT).

Students who did not earn an 18 on the ACT in reading or English may attempt a challenge test during the summer prior to their first semester. 

International students and students over one year removed from high school are eligible to take the ACCUPLACER exam. ACCUPLACER is a set of computer-adaptive placement tests that quickly, accurately and efficiently assess reading, writing and math skills. For more information regarding the ACCUPLACER, visit ACCUPLACER Online.

Test Proctoring

With the consent of the instructor or Lindsey Wilson disabilities officer, tests may be proctored for students who require special testing situations. Contact the tutor coordinator for more information.
