2020 HSK Testing Is Cancelled Until Further Notice

Due to the increase in COVID-19 cases, the GW Confucius Institute and the George Washington University have decided to take proactive steps to protect the health of the community by discontinuing in-person activities and events until at least April 5th. In response to that, we have decided to cancel our HSK exams for 2020 until further notice.

Thank you for your understanding. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at [email protected]
