Regents' Testing Program


Regents' Writing and Reading Skills Requirement

Board of Regents' policy states that each institution of the University System of Georgia shall ensure that students obtaining a degree from a System institution possess certain minimum skills of reading and writing, hereinafter called Regents' Writing and Reading Skills.  The Regents' Writing and Reading Skills requirement will ensure students have competence, at a minimum Systemwide level, in reading and writing.  Students may satisfy these requirements by scoring at or above specified scores on the examinations listed below.     

On May 3, 2010, Georgia College was approved for an exemption of the Regents' Test by the Board of Regents.  As a result, the Regents' Test will no longer be needed here to satisfy the Writing and Reading Skills requirement.  Students who do not satisfy one or both requirements with test scores will satisfy them upon completion of ENGL 1101 and 1102.

Students may satisfy the Regents' Reading Skills Requirement  by scoring at or above specified scores on any of the following examinations:

  • Regents' Reading Test exemption score: 61
  • SAT Reasoning Test,  Reading Section exemption score: 510
  • ACT Reading exemption score: 23

(SAT or ACT scores must be from a national administration. Scores from institutional SAT or residual ACT tests will not be acceptable for this purpose.)

Students may satisfy the Regents' Writing Skills Requirement by scoring at or above specified scores on any of the following  examinations:

  • Regents' Essay exemption score: 2
