WHAT IS THE GED TESTING PROGRAM?
The General Educational Development Testing Program offers you an opportunity to earn a GED high school diploma. Many people who did not finish high school have knowledge and skills comparable to people who did graduate. This idea is the basis of the GED Testing Program. The GED Test asks questions about subjects covered in high school. The GED Tests are given in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, the U.S. territories, most Canadian provinces, and the Canadian territories. Each year, about one-half million people earn their GED Diplomas, which they use to get jobs, earn promotions, or qualify for higher education and training. An individual can take the GED Tests in English, Spanish, or French.
At this time there are no available openings to retest on the paper-based tests in our office. You do have the option to test using the new computer based testing until December 31st. You will still be testing on the same version of the test but will be taking it on the new computers located in our office. The testing fee will be $24 per test. All results, with the exception of writing, will be scored immediately and you will leave our office with your results. The writing retests takes approximately 3 days to be scored. The advantage to this option is that you will know very quickly the results of your test. All appointments must be scheduled and paid for online. Please see below for more information regarding Pearson Vue Center and how to schedule appointments.

If he/she does not take the test, it will be treated as a "no show" and the test-taker will forfeit their test fees.
