Testing Department


Testing Department Working Remotely Effective March 19, 2020

In light of the heightened concerns around COVID-19 and CSULB's decision to suspend in-person testing, the Testing Office will work remotely until further notice. Our goal is to ensure that we can provide you with assistance to successfully meet your goals. During this time, we will not be open for any in-person services, but we will maintain our normal advising hours online.

The Testing Department will be available online Monday - Friday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm starting March 19, 2020, until further notice.

If you have any questions or concerns, please send an email to testing@csulb.edu. Please be sure to include your Name, Campus ID #, Phone # and any questions you may have. Emails will be responded to in the order they are received.

Testing is a department in the Division of Student Affairs. Its main functions are as follows:

  • Maintains the highest compliance with institutional, state and federal regulations regarding the confidentiality of test candidate information and records.
  • Provides information regarding the university's testing requirements, assist with interpreting university testing policies, providing test registration materials, arrange special accommodations, and verify test scores for the GWAR Placement Examination (GPE), Chemistry Placement Test (CPT), High School Equivalency Test (HiSet), and English Placement Test (EPT) & Entry Level Mathematics (ELM) test.
  • Offers proctoring services for an allotted fee for anyone needing to take a paper or computer-based test for another university, college or agency.

Given these main functions, our mission statement is as follows:

The Testing Department is a comprehensive department in the Division of Student Affairs that is committed to facilitating student enrollment and graduation by administering campus-specific exams, CSU system-wide exams, and national test programs while maintaining the highest compliance with institutional, state and federal regulations.
