Please note: registration for the Spring 2019 Examinations has closed. Please check again in early June for Fall 2019 Registration. 

Do you need certification or a diploma for work, study or a visa? Would you like to know the level of your knowledge of German? There are numerous internationally recognized proficiency exams available through our institute. 

The overview of Goethe-Institut examination and course levels can tell you which exam is designed for which level. Detailed information on Goethe-Institut examinations and sample tests can be found on our central site.

Important: Please note that the regular turn-around time for examination results and/or participation certificates is 4 to 6 business weeks after taking a Goethe Certificate Examination at the Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta. For November testing dates, this timeline is disrupted by the Christmas holidays so expect additional delays. 

Therefore, we ask that you please schedule your exam far enough in advance in case you require the results for official purposes, such as applying for a visa. We cannot guarantee a shorter turn-around, as exams must be graded first and then sent back to our regional headquarters.
