Testing Center

CLEP (College-Level Examination Program) Exams: Computer-based

Testing Center Update 

St. Cloud State University is in the process of relocating our testing center and anticipate the move to be completed by Summer 2021.  We are preparing a safe testing environment that complies with current COVID-19 protocols.

Our new site is located a few blocks from SCSU’ s main campus, is easily accessible and has ample free parking. Additional details will be posted here in the coming weeks.

Testing companies are not currently scheduling exams at our site. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience but please know testing services will be resumed as soon as possible.
