All BSIT Pre-Licensure Applicants are required to take the HESI Exam

The Health Education Services Inc. (HESI) Exam helps determine if you’re ready to pursue your Bachelor’s degree in Imaging Technology. The HESI exam tests basic essential skills in the academic content areas of reading, mathematics, science, as well as English and language usage. The objectives assessed on the HESI exam are those which educators deemed most appropriate and relevant to measure the entry-level academic readiness of allied health program applicants.

Registering for the HESI Exam

The HESI Exam is offered at Resurrection University on select dates. Students can register for the exam by filling out an online application and paying the application fee. For questions regarding the HESI Exam, please contact Mallory Martin, Student Development & Disability Services Coordinator, 773.252.5304 or mallory.martin@resu.edu
