Welcome to the Office of Testing

Important COVID Information

If you are experiencing any symptoms associated with COVID-19, or know that you have been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19, please do not come in to test. You may reschedule through RegisterBlast or your exam sponsor.

Face Coverings: University System of Georgia institutions require all faculty, staff, students, and visitors to wear an appropriate face covering while inside campus facilities/buildings. If you do not wear an appropriate face covering you will not be able to test. Reasonable accommodations may be made for documented health reasons.

Social Distancing: Our office asks that you be considerate of our staff and other examinees by practicing proper social distancing, and adhering to the posted maximum number of occupants signs. There is a limited number of appointments available and a strict no walk-in policy — no exceptions will be made.

Payments: For exams that require payment, the Office of Testing is only accepting payments prior to your appointment via our TouchNet store (card and electronic check). We are not accepting cash or physical checks at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience.
