COVID-19 Update: We require all exam participants to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 or to present a negative PCR test result from a medical facility taken within 72 hours of my exam start time to be admitted to an exam at the Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta.
A person is considered fully vaccinated 14 days after completion of a COVID-19 vaccination series (after the second dose of a 2-dose series, or after one dose of a single-dose vaccine). Proof of vaccination (vaccination card) is required. If you have been in close contact with someone with a confirmed case of COVID-19 or have experienced any flu-like symptoms (e.g. fever, headache, dry cough, respiratory problems, diarrhea) within 10 days prior to the date of the exam, please stay home.
As of July 2022, we recommend wearing a mask while in the Goethe-Zentrum for events, classes, and exams. If the COVID risk assessment changes by the exam date, you may be required to wear a mask during the exam. Refusal to do so can lead to exclusion from the exam.
Once you register for an exam on our website, you may cancel your registration up to the date that registration closes, approximately 4 weeks before the exam date, and receive a full refund of your registration fee. After this deadline, your registration is non-refundable. If you are sick on exam day, have had COVID symptoms within 10 days of the exam, have a positive COVID test, or have been exposed to COVID, you can take the exam at no additional cost on the next date the exam is offered at Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta.
