The Center strives to create a testing environment that is conducive to the best test performance for each examinee.

Fort Valley State University received approval for Regents’ Test exemption on February 15, 2012. Consequently, satisfaction of the Regents of the Regents’ Test requirement is no longer required for graduation. However, students who were enrolled in Regents’ Test prep classes ( RGTR 0198, RGTE 0199, ENGL 1107, ENGL 1108 ) Spring Semester 2012 must successfully satisfy course requirement before graduation. Students who received an unsatisfactory grade in the aforementioned Regents’ Test prep classes must repeat the course (s) until they successfully satisfy the requirements.
