What is the GED®?
If you didn’t graduate from high school, the GED® (General Educational Development) tests can help you earn a high school equivalency certificate. Tests are available in English and Spanish.
Why is it important? A GED® opens doors — to college, training programs, the military, better jobs and career advancement. It's the first step to building a better future.
Most colleges and employers accept the GED® as being equivalent to a high school diploma.
Getting Ready to Take the Tests
If you have been out of school for a while, you may want to take some GED® prep classes before you take the GED® tests. We offer classes in math, language arts, reading, social studies and science.
You can take the classes in one of our learning centers or online.
Tuition for GED® prep classes is $25 per quarter. If you need help paying for the classes, financial assistance may be available.
The fee for GED® testing is $30 per test and there are four tests.
