Welcome to the University Testing Center!

The University Testing Center is open to all Cal State L.A students, and also offers many services to residents of our surrounding communities. The Center administers exams for the purpose of admissions, class placement, and graduation competency. Services provided to incoming and registered students include the American College Test assessment (ACT), Entry Level Mathematics (ELM), English Placement Test (EPT), the Writing Proficiency Examination (WPE), TEAS Nursing Exam and a variety of departmental placement exams.

For your information, below you will find a listing of some of the exams that are offered through the University Testing Center. Please be aware that many of the exams have established time limits.
