This test will be administered only to former Alabama public school students who completed all courses and credits needed for graduation before exiting school but did not pass all required sections of the AHSGE.  If an examinee did not complete all courses and credits needed for graduation before exiting school, that examinee will NOT be eligible to test until he or she completes all requirements.  Transcripts showing that all courses/credits for the high school diploma have been completed must be provided to the ALSDE.  It is the responsibility of the Principal or System Test Coordinator to check each transcript for eligibility.  An official copy of each registered examinee’s transcript must be sent to Student Assessment from the school or district.

On test day, the examinee will provide a current valid government-issued photo identification (i.e., driver’s license, non-driver’s ID, passport) before being admitted to sit for the AHSGE.  Testing staff will make a copy of the ID presented by the examinee.

Sign in and verification will begin at 8:00 a.m.  Testing will begin promptly at 8:30 a.m. each day.  NO ONE will be admitted after 8:30 a.m. (no exceptions).

Any former student who is eligible to take the graduation examination must notify the Student Assessment Office no later than June 2, 2017, to register.
