Find your GED testing site
1. Log into your account.
2. Click on “Where to Test” located near the top of the screen.
- 3. Input your address to find testing sites in your area. Special accommodations can be made for students living in military communities or on base.
- 4. Locations will appear based on distance from your home. Directions are provided directly from your home to each testing site.
GED testing site requirements
Each local testing center has it’s own rules and requirements. It is very important that you research your specific state and testing site for the most up-to-date information. Look for residency requirements, age restrictions and approved methods of identification.
If your state no longer offers the GED, there are many states that have no residency requirement. An example: you do not have to be a resident of Michigan in order to test there. If testing suddenly became unavailable in Ohio, students could take their GED at a testing site in Michigan.
For even more information, reach out to your state’s GED testing administrator. Complete contact information is provided so you can easily get in touch with the person who is in charge of the GED testing programs in your area.
Scheduling a test at a GED Testing Site
When the time comes to schedule your exam, select up to three GED testing sites in order to compare availability for testing. Not all subject tests are available at all testing centers, which means you might not be able to schedule all of your tests through the same location.
Finding a testing center location is only part of the GED scheduling process. For additional information on scheduling your GED, visit our blog posts on creating a GED testing schedule and test day information.
