Official HSK Test Centers in the USA (with Location & Contact Details)

USA HSK test centers

China’s growing importance to the United States is driving the boom in Chinese education across all levels. The popularity of Chinese language learning, in particular, is soaring within the U.S. education system. It is thus only natural that more Americans are taking the HSK test, the official Chinese proficiency test to prove their language competence in Chinese.

If you are looking for an HSK test center in the USA, you’ve come to the right place. As of 2020, there is a total of 97 authorized HSK test centers in the United States of America, hosted in many of the Confucius Institutes and Chinese language schools across the country.

15 of the 97 HSK test centers in the USA offer both computer-based HSK tests (also known as internet-based/online HSK tests) and paper-based HSK tests. In this post, we include all their locations and contact details, so that you can focus on selecting the test center that’s most conveniently located to where you live.

(HSK test can be taken either on computer or paper, compare their pros and cons)

Note: We noticed that since 2018, a number of HSK Test Centers/Confucius Institutes in the U.S have been closed without prior notice under political and financial pressures from Washington (read report here). While we at ImproveMandarin.Com aim to keep the published list as accurate as possible (the above list is updated yearly following the data provided by Hanban, the HSK test organizer), we suggest you contact the test centers to reconfirm available open dates and venues before you sign up for an HSK test.
