Description

Congratulations on the next step in becoming a TRAILBLAZER.

Atlanta Metropolitan State College is gearing up for New Student Orientation for the Spring 2019 7 1/2-week term that begins on March 4th! It's an event that you don't want to miss! Check-in begins at 9:00 a.m. and the program begins promptly at 10:00 a.m. While we anticipate completion of the program at 1:30 p.m., it is not a guarantee.

If you have not yet completed the admissions process, please do so prior to attending orientation. You may bring admissions-related documents on Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. to the Student Services and Success Center, Building 650. In addition, the Office of Financial Aid is hosting "FAFSA Fridays" which are aimed at assisting you in completing your FAFSA. The events are scheduled every Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the Student Services and Success Center. Please note that the payment deadline for Spring 2019 is Monday, March 4th.

ACCUPLACER is the current placement test administered at the college. The benefit of meeting the test target scores listed below is that it will exempt you from enrolling in a learning support math and/or English course. You have the option to take this exam if you have not already taken it or if you are not satisfied with your results from a previous placement exam. Please note that the ACCUPLACER exam can ONLY be taken prior to registering for any class. The college is offering the test at no cost for Spring 2019 admission.

ACCUPLACER Target Scores for Placement

Elementary Algebra – 67, Reading – 61, and WritePlacer – 4.
