Gwinnett Tech’s Assessment Center offers a wide range of testing services that can further your college education and advance your career.
Exemption exams allow you to receive Gwinnett Technical College credit for classes by passing an exam. Course credit by examination is recorded as EXE on the transcript and is not included in the calculation of the student’s GPA. EXE credit does not count as institutional credit (students are required to earn a minimum of 40% of their program’s required credits at Gwinnett Tech in order to be granted an award).
The tests are timed and you must check the content sheet for specific details.
A current picture ID will be required for test admittance.

Any time during the semester but the exam must be completed and graded prior to the start of the upcoming term. Allow one week for grading.
You must score 80% or higher to pass an exemption exam.
