Testing Services for SJSU Students
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.
For some courses which do not have a corresponding CLEP exam, it may be possible to receive credit by examination.
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.
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.
Students may waive the US3 general education requirement at SJSU by earning a passing score on the US3 Waiver Exam.
At SJSU, students meet the CSU Graduate Writing Assessment Requirement (GWAR) for graduation by completing the WST and the 100W course in their major.
