HESI Assessments

HESI Assessments are given at the campus Testing Centers listed in step 2 by appointment only.


HESI Assessments are specific to Collin College programs and do not include all sections of the HESI. Students intending to send their results to other colleges should not take the assessment at Collin College.


PLEASE NOTE: There is a point when you are setting up your EVOLVE account that it will look like there is no charge and you are given a receipt number. You are NOT done at this point and this is not the receipt number that is asked for in Step 2 when you schedule your exam. There is always a payment due for the exam.
