College Entrance Exam - Retest Fee Policy

A fee of $5.00 per part for retest of the ACCUPLACER college entrance exam will be charged to students. The initial battery of tests is covered in the $25.00 Admissions Application fee; however, a retest is required if:

  • The scores are over five years old and the student did not complete an English and Math/Algebra course requirement;
  • The student is entering an Associate Degree program and does not have required minimum scores from a prior test;
  • The student is entering a diploma program that requires higher minimum entrance scores

ACCUPLACER, COMPASS, and ASSET scores are accepted from other accredited institutions provided the scores are no more than five (5) years old.

Out-of-State Fees

Students who reside outside the state of Georgia will pay tuition twice that charged Georgia residents. Alabama residents of those counties contiguous to the Albany Technical College service delivery area (Barbour County, Henry County, and Houston County) are exempt from paying out-of-state tuition fees and will be assessed the same tuition and fees as residents of Georgia. Out-of-state residents do not qualify for HOPE.

Tuition and Fees for Senior Citizens

Residents of Georgia who are 62 years of age or older may request a waiver of tuition. This policy applies to regular and institutional credit courses only. It does not apply to continuous career learning courses, non-credit courses, or seminars. If tuition is waived under this policy, admission will be granted on a space-available basis. Senior citizens must meet all other admission requirements as specified. Proof of age must be presented at registration to receive a waiver.

Payment of Fees and Charges

Fees and charges may be paid by cash, check, credit card (VISA, MasterCard, or American Express), money order, or through financial aid procedures. Payment is expected at the time of registration. Checks cannot be accepted for payment without proper photo identification of the student or from those students who have financial obligations to the College. A fee of $30.00 will apply to any returned check.

Miscellaneous Fees and Expenses

Books

Each student is required to purchase books needed for their respective course. Costs will vary. The cost of books can be viewed by going to www.albanytech.edu and selecting bookstore. Click on the area that says “buy your books online” and you will be forwarded to the screen that will allow you to view and price the books for the courses that you are registered.

Tools

In many training programs, students are required to purchase basic tools essential to the occupational field for which they are training.

Uniforms

Uniforms are required for students in health programs, early childhood care and education, and in cosmetology. Additional programs may require a uniform. Instructors will provide details.

Financial Obligations to ATC

Failure to meet financial obligations to ATC may result in the student's dismissal with no credit for the term. Additionally, such students may be denied enrollment in subsequent terms. ATC will withhold copies of educational records of students who have outstanding debts to the College. Students with outstanding debts are not allowed to participate in any ATC functions, such as the graduation ceremony.
