Important

The Georgia History and Constitution Proficiency Exams are available to transfer students who have already taken and passed the equivalent of HIST 2111/2112 or POLS 1101/2201/4211 out of state. If you have not fulfilled any history or political science course requirements, you must take the UWG course instead of these exams.

  • GA History & GA Constitution Proficiency Examinees will be required to show a photo ID.
  • A $10 testing fee is associated with both the GA History and the GA Constitution exams. Additionally, we will offer individual appointments for testing if you are unable to register for our regularly scheduled exams each semester.
  • If you are not sure if you need to take one or both of these exams, please email any questions/concerns to graduation@westga.edu and transfer@westga.edu in the Registrar's Office.

 

Students who take AP, CLEP and IB Exams and receive credit for HIST 2111 or 2112 or POLS 1101 will not have satisfied the GA History and Constitution requirements and will need to take the GA History and/or Constitution exam(s).

 

If you have any questions regarding exam registration or payment, please reach out to our Testing Office at 678-839-6435 or email us at testwest@westga.edu.
