ALTA Test 2016 Registration

Posted by admin on March 28, 2016

 ALTA exam registration opens on March 27th and closes May 1st, 2016.

The Bulgarian Language Test ALTA is a great way to highlight your knowledge of written and spoken Bulgarian and demonstrate your interest in the Bulgarian language on your college applications. Plus, a strong score could help you fulfill a college admission requirements.*

New this year: the Bulgarian School of Seattle has made a major change to who is eligible to take the ALTA exam and to the exam requirements. Many students and families will benefit from this change. Age requirement will still be based on student school year placement in Middle or High school. All registrants will be asked about the name of their primarily school, grade level, student ID number & school district. A comments field will also be included in online registration.

REGISTRATION FEES: For all Bulgarian School of Seattle regular students $150. For all other students $380 with the requirement to take a pre-assessment.


The exam includes the ALTA Writing Skills Assessment as well as Speaking and Listening Assessment. Students who pass this exam will earn 4-5 high school World Language Credits which may be applied to any High School in Washington State. These credits will fulfill the world language requirements for high school graduation, so no other high school language classes are required for graduation. This can allow a student to use that time to take other needed high school classes or get a jump on college by taking college prep classes.

Online registration is strongly preferred. If that is not possible, please contact for Paper registration form. 

Payment must be received BEFORE May 1st. Click here to pay the exam.
