Testing Services

Alternate Testing Sites

If you are looking for a testing site that will allow non-GHC Students to take ACCUPLACER, or you're an online student outside of the North Georgia area, you can use the link below to find a testing center near you that may allow you to take your exams. Please note that eLearning students will have to go through an approval process to take a proctored midterm or final elsewhere. All GHC applicants must arrange ACCUPLACER testing through GHC.

Consortium of College Testing Centers

 

Beginning mid-semester Fall 2016, the Compass Entrance Test will be replaced with the ACCUPLACER Entrance Test, per USG recommendation. Compass Placement Test scores will continue to be honored until 12/31/16. Scores may not be combined from the Compass and ACCUPLACER test.
