Testing Services for SJSU Students

CLEP Exams

The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) is a computer-based credit by examination program, owned by College Board. Tests are available in over 30 subject areas. We administer the exam to students from any school/institution.

Credit By Examination

For some courses which do not have a corresponding CLEP exam, it may be possible to receive credit by examination.

Makeup Exams

In cases where students are unable to complete an exam with their class, and cannot attend the instructor's office hours, the instructor may request to have your exam administered by the Testing Office.

Precalculus Proficiency Assessment

Students in majors that require advanced mathematics courses may be asked to take the Precalclulus Proficiency Assessment (PPA) if they do not have other qualifying test scores or coursework to fulfill course prerequisites.

US3 Waiver Exam

Students may waive the US3 general education requirement at SJSU by earning a passing score on the US3 Waiver Exam.

Writing Skills Test

At SJSU, students meet the CSU Graduate Writing Assessment Requirement (GWAR) for graduation by completing the WST and the 100W course in their major.
