About the Testing Center

The Testing Center at Sam Houston State University opened its doors for business in January, 2003. It is located in Academic Building IV (ABIV), Room 102. The Testing Center is an open testing facility (testing currently enrolled SHSU students as well as those who are not SHSU students). People from all stages of life are encouraged to utilize  the center for testing purposes.

A non-refundable/non-transferable test fee is charged for each exam administered in the Testing Center, in addition to any test fees charged by the testing companies. Test fees are paid by check or money order (made payable to SHSU), or by credit card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express or Discover). The Testing Center has limited seating for testing so reservations for testing are made on a first-come, first-served basis. Please review each exam for specific information on registration and payments.

The staff of the Testing Center is happy to be of service to you. If you have questions or need additional information concerning any of our services, staff, or testing facilities please do not hesitate to contact us.


The Testing Center provides institutional and national testing opportunities to students and non-students in an atmosphere which enables examinees to perform to the best of their abilities. This atmosphere relies on test administration practices which (1) adhere to nationally recognized professional testing standards and government regulations, (2) maintain the integrity of the testing process by incorporating ethical standards and security measures, and (3) treat all examinees in a professional yet personable manner. The Sam Houston State University Testing Center adheres to the Professional Standards and Guidelines of the National College Testing Association.
