Legislative Exams are institutional exams administered to help students complete graduation requirements established by the Board of Regents. Most students meet their legislative requirements upon successful completion of history and political science core classes, however, there are some students who have not met their requirements for various reasons. Students who have not met their requirements should check with their advisor or with the Registrar’s Office for assistance in identifying which test(s) they are required to take.
Students will be given a 48-hour window to complete the exam once TDS has received the information mentioned above. If you are unable to take the exam within this 48-hour timeframe, kindly delay sending the necessary information to TDS until you are ready.
The four different areas of testing include the Georgia Constitution, Georgia History, U.S. History, and U.S. Constitution. Information about the initial tests is described in the chart below:
|Georgia Constitution||55 multiple choice||39|
|Georgia History||25 multiple choice||17|
