Admission Test Requirements

In order to be admitted to Athens Technical College, every applicant is required to obtain minimum scores on one of the following tests: COMPASS, ASSET, ACT, or SAT. If after taking our placement test, an applicant submits valid test scores that are no more than five years old from another source, the admissions office will use the best combination of those scores to admit that individual to the College.

Completion of English composition and rhetoric, along with either college algebra, or calculus, or math modeling, or pre-calculus or elementary statistics at an accredited college or university may also be used to meet the placement test requirement. The level of these courses must be equal to or greater than courses in the program for which application is being made. Official college transcripts will be required to verify this information.

For more information, see our Placement Test Policy.
