HESI Testing

HESI Testing

Part of the admissions process for the Dental Hygienist, Diagnostic Medical Sonography, Physical Therapist Assistant, and Radiography programs.

The HESI has been nationally validated to be an accurate tool for identifying candidates with the greatest chance for program success and allows for review of all candidates fairly and accurately.

The HESI exams will be offered annually in February, June, and September. You will have one testing and one retesting opportunity per year.
