Student Testing Services

Note: Due to construction around the Robinson Tower and limited parking at the Tower, we have temporarily relocated our testing location to the Sid Richardson Building (within the Career Center, West Wing). We will only be able to administer one exam at a time, therefore we are limiting in-person testing to Baylor students for HESI and CLEP. Online testing is available for both HESI and CLEP.

If you are interested in taking the HESI, CLEP, or ACT Residual test, or need to have a correspondence exam proctored at the Student Testing Center in Waco, Texas, you MUST have an appointment. Walk-ins will NOT be accepted. To schedule an exam, send an email to student_testing@baylor.edu. Include your name, the exam you are registering for, and your telephone number. A member of our staff will contact you to make the testing arrangements.

Note: As of February 21, 2022, Baylor University is no longer requiring facemasks in classrooms or labs. Therefore, students will no longer be required to wear facemasks while taking exams in our testing facilities. The wearing of facemasks will be optional.

The primary mission of Student Testing Services is to enable students and members of the Waco community to achieve academic and professional goals through various testing programs.

To fulfill this mission, the office offers a variety of standardized tests for admissions purposes and college credit. These include the ACT Residual, HESI, CLEP, and proctoring of correspondence exams. The office also oversees the processing of credits from the various credit by exam programs including: Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), CLEP, SAT Subject exams, and Baylor Departmental exams. In addition, the office administers National exams for ACT, SAT, LSAT and GRE Subject exams.
