What is the Regents' Testing Program?
To establish eligibility for an undergraduate degree, every student in the University System of Georgia must pass the Regents' Test, a two-part examination designed to measure proficiency in reading and English composition. Students are invited to take this exam when they have earned ten hours of course credit. If a student fails to pass the Regents' Test, he or she must repeat the test until a passing grade has been achieved.
Any student accumulating 45 semester hours of course credit toward a degree without passing one or both portions of the Regents' Test must take the Regents' Test Preparation course along with other credit course work.
