Retesting Policies and Registration
After 30 days from their original test date, an applicant is eligible to retest one time only in writing, reading, and math. It is necessary to complete the Retesting Registration Form that is available on each campus of Athens Technical College and pay a $15 per section retesting fee. This form with evidence of payment must be submitted at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled retesting date. If an applicant scores in the Adult Education range on both their original test and on their retest, they must follow the Adult Education Retesting Policy. It is not necessary to retake the entire test. Applicants should only retest on those sections which were not within the Regular Admission range.
The Adult Education Retesting Policy is for any applicants who are not currently enrolled in high school and who continue to score in the Adult Education range for their selected program in one or more basic skills areas on both their original test and retest. If that occurs, the applicant will be referred to the Adult Education Center in their county of residence for remedial work before being permitted to retest again. The Retesting Registration Form - Adult Education Status is available on each campus of the College. It contains detailed information about the Adult Education Retesting process. Each county in Georgia has an Adult Education Program which provides free instruction to build academic skills so that applicants can successfully exit that program, retest on the COMPASS placement exam after a 30-day waiting period, and gain admission to Athens Technical College.
Currently enrolled high school students who score in the Adult Education range on their first retest will not be allowed to retest again until after they have graduated from high school. They will not be required to complete the Adult Education remediation in order to retest after graduation unless they score in the Adult Education range on their second retest.
