Testing Center


The Testing Center is designed to provide a quiet, supervised testing environment for students who must take tests out of schedule. This includes some special needs students and students who are representing the university on official business (including student-athletes).

The Testing Center is open 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Please call 863-8033 at least 24 hours in advance to schedule a testing appointment [the delay allows for ample time for the professor to get the test over to the Testing Center]. Testing appointments will be scheduled to be compatible with the hours of operation and staff availability.


CLEP Testing


Students must pay $80.00 to take a CLEP exam.  Non-CSU students must also pay a $30.00 testing fee to CSU payable by cash or check only (made payable to CSU).  All students must provide two forms of picture identification in order to take a CLEP exam.


STEP 1:  Visit the Office of the Registrar and fill out a Standardized Subject Examination Request Form.  Receive final approval  to take exam from the Registrar.   Step 1 is only required for CSU students.


STEP 2:  Log into My Account Registration Portal and create an account (http://clep.collegeboard.org/register/exam ).


STEP 3:  Register and pay your $80 exam fee through your CLEP account (http://clep.collegeboard.org/register/exam ).  CSU Honor students are not required to pay the exam fee at time of registration.


STEP 4:  Schedule your appointment with the CSU Testing Center to take the test by calling 843-863-8033 or stopping by the Student Success Center located on the first floor of the Strom Thurmond Building.
