- Accuplacer for certain certificate programs: Computer-based test used for certain certificate program students to measure reading skills (child development, welding, machine shop, cosmetology, electrical, instrumentation, and pipefitting).
- Instructor (Individualized Classes and Make-up Testing): With instructor permission, students may use the Testing Center as a site for make-up exams or for exams for individualized testing. Students and faculty are encouraged to be familiar with the Guidelines for Testing.
- VCT, Distance Education, and Online Courses: In order to provide each student with the opportunity to complete their education, Lee College offers distance learning courses and is a part of a network of Texas community colleges offering online classes. These students are allowed to take their tests in the Testing Center.
- Proctor Services: The Testing Center offers proctor services for students attending other institutions. There is a $15 proctor fee per exam to be paid prior to testing. Specific questions regarding these services should contact the Testing Center directly at 281.425.6430 or 281.425.6842.

After you pass the GED® test, your diploma or credential will be issued by your state but you’ll receive a GED® transcript to apply to college, start training, or get a better job.
