Contact Laker Success by emailing  or by visiting the Student Engagement Center in Cisler Center, Room 100.

  • English Fluency Extension Policy

    Students who attend LSSU and for whom English is not their first language, may be granted extended time (time and a half) on quizzes and exams during their first year of study at LSSU.  This temporary allowance is intended to help students while they are building and improving their English language skills.

    Students who qualify may also be allowed to use a bilingual dictionary during quizzes and exams.  This dictionary will be provided by the proctor.  Note: electronic devices such as phones do not qualify as a dictionary.

    This allowance is dependent on:

        1)      Students must apply with Academic Accessibility Services for this allowance.

        2)      Students must have taken the TOEFL (or equivalent) to qualify for this allowance.

        3)      Students will only receive this allowance for one year unless approved otherwise by the Provost’s office. It is the responsibility of the student to work towards gaining English fluency during that year.
