GED® Exam Preparation

The Testing Center is currently open on Tuesdays for in-person testing from 8:30am to 4:30pm. Please visit GED.com to make an appointment to take your test.

What is the GED?

The GED® is a certificate of high school equivalency for individuals who have not completed high school. The exam consists of four separate tests, one for each of the following areas: Social Studies, Science, Mathematical Reasoning, and Reasoning through Language Arts (RLA).

Why take the GED?

The GED® is a good option if you have strong academic skills and want to gain a high school equivalency certificate through testing of your knowledge. It may also be a good option if you are under 21 and who are unable to complete high school through other options. If you have a GED® you can still pursue a high school diploma through the HS21+ or the Open Doors program at SVC. While the GED® is accepted by many employers and institutions of higher education in lieu of a high school diploma, it may not be accepted by some employers or for military service.
