What is the Georgia Government Review course and who needs it?

Students who have previously taken and passed POLS 1101 (American Government) from a school outside of the University System of Georgia are missing the legislative requirement for Georgia History and Constitution and have the option to take the online Georgia Government Review course. Also, some students who completed POLS 1101 at Albany State University West Campus (Formerly Darton State University) prior to Fall 2013 may be required to complete the review course prior to graduation. The course will provide the necessary information and materials that students need to prepare for the challenge exam.

The course consists of a Georgia Government Summary, the Georgia Constitution and a PowerPoint presentation to assist with reading and reviewing the written material. Students can check their progress and retention of information by utilizing study aids; these consist of crossword puzzles, pick a letter, and fill in the blank questions.

After reading the course materials and preparation, students will be able to take the challenge exam via ProctorU or at the Albany State University West Campus (Formerly Darton State University) campus. The exam includes 25 multiple choice questions and is timed at 1 hour. Students must make a 70 or better to pass the proctored challenge exam and thus satisfy the legislative requirement.

Students who are missing the legislative requirement for Georgia History and Constitution should contact the Business and Social Science division office at 229-317-6560. After a review by the Registrar’s office, students will be added to the online class and can begin studying the course material.

In order to register for this course, students must

Be enrolled at Albany State University West Campus (Formerly Darton State University)

AND

Have previously passed POLS 1101 at an institution outside of the University System of Georgia
