POST Entrance Examination
On December 10, 2008, POST Council adopted the ASSET and COMPASS test as the official POST Entrance Examination. Therefore, effective January 1, 2009, the official entrance exam will be the COMPASS or ASSET test required for admission to the Technical College System of Georgia colleges. Regional academies will no longer be administering the Descriptive Test of Language Skills exam after December 31, 2008. When an individual passes the required POST entrance exam (old version or new version), the individual has met the state requirement for the POST certification application process. Individuals may test at any Technical College System of Georgia location, and details on how to schedule an appointment to take one of these tests are available from these locations. The POST entrance exam access form will be required to take this exam for the purpose of attending any basic law enforcement course, and this form may be obtained from the POST web site after January 1, 2009. Please be aware that if an individual can prove successful completion of other college admission tests which are provided at the end of this notice, they will be deemed to have satisfied the requirements of the POST Entrance Examination.
TCSG may charge a fee for taking the test. The fee ranges from $15.00 to $25.00 based upon the school. POST has no authority to regulate this.
