Out-of-state testing is available for students who live outside of Georgia and are expected to complete their degree requirements without attending classes at a location in Georgia. Students tested out-of-state must fulfill any Regents' Skills course requirements if they are enrolled in other University System courses.
The following procedure is to be followed for out-of-state testing.
- The student must notify the Regents' Test Coordinator of his or her plans to take the test out-of-state. The test coordinator will determine whether the student is eligible for out-of-state testing.
- After receiving approval from the test coordinator, the student must contact a responsible person in the testing or counseling office at a college in the vicinity where he or she wishes to be tested to arrange for a testing time.
- The person who will administer the test must send a letter (on letterhead) to the test coordinator indicating his or her willingness to administer the exam.
- The test coordinator must notify the Regents' Testing Program Office that the student is ready to take the test. Attached to the written notification should be a copy of the letter from the out-of-state person responsible for administering the test.
- The Regents' Testing Program Office will mail the appropriate materials and instructions for testing to the person administering the test.
- All tests will be scored at the regularly designated times. Scores will be reported with the next regular score report of the originating institution.
- If the student fails and wants to retake the test the above steps should be repeated the next semester.
