  2. Preparing for the tests:  Only if you plan to test this year you can purchase a study guide at the Titan store located on main campus or at ATITesting.com.

    If you have not already, please set up an account with ATI Testing, prior to your testing date. When asked to choose an institution, please select "Lane CC AH". Set up new account here.

  3. Schedule testing appointment: Make your appointment as early as possible, but only after you have completed your admissions and received your L#. No later testing options will be available. Schedule test here (see dates below).

  4. Sessions: Everyone in the room will be taking the test at the same time; there will be no other testing programs in the room; starting time will be enforced to eliminate people entering the room and disrupting the session. You will not be allowed to start the test if you arrive late. You must arrive 10 minutes early.

  5. Bring Photo ID: A valid photo ID is required when you come in to test. Please bring it with you or you will not be able to test.

  6. Pay the testing fee: Payment will occur online at the start of testing. You will need to pay online with a credit card, debit card or if you do not want to use your own credit card, please pick up a pre-paid card to pay for the test.
