If you are willing to visit without a scheduled time, Walk-In Testing may be a quicker alternative.  On most testing days we will be able to seat you after a short wait based on available seating.  “Available seating” occurs when a person scheduled for testing does not arrive or when someone completes their test early.  Since these events are somewhat unpredictable, we cannot promise that you will be tested as a Walk-In.  If you are considering this alternative, please arrive in the morning to give yourself the best testing opportunity.  If possible, please call our office at 717-787-2935 before visiting - we can sometimes suggest a day to try Walk-In or suggest days to avoid.  When you arrive, please advise the SCSC staff person at the front desk you want to be tested as a Walk-In.

DELAYED OPENINGS:   If the “Lackawanna County Pennsylvania CareerLink” has a Delayed Opening, and you are scheduled for an ‘AM’ testing session, please click on the “On-Line Services” link to reschedule your test date or you may follow the (Walk-In testing) procedure as described above after the reopening of state agencies.  If you decide that your local road conditions make it unsafe to travel, you can test at a later time using Walk-In testing as described above.

NOTE:  If you are testing with an accommodation due to a disability, you cannot use Walk-In testing.  You must call our office Telephone Voice (717) 787-2935; Text Telephone (Deaf/Hard of Hearing Callers Only) (717) 787-5581 to reschedule testing.
