HESI Admission Assessment Examination Information

Lone Star College is working with Elsevier to provide an alternative approach to the HESI Admission Assessment (A2) examination.  Please note that this process is not affiliated with Lone Star College or their respective Testing Centers.  Students will complete the HESI A2 through an online testing system on the Elsevier website.  The Directors of Nursing Programs are working to ensure all prospective nursing applicants have an equal opportunity to take the A2 prior to the application deadline.  As with any new process, there may be unforeseen errors within the system, and so we ask for your patience throughout this process. You must first be a Lone Star student to test..

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Remote Proctored Admission Assessment Exam is $66* $49 exam fee, $13 Proctor fee, $4 Ecommerce fee

Students may elect to not use this service understanding that Lone Star College Testing Centers offer a reduced rate but may or may not open before application deadlines
