GED Process

A GED  is a certificate demonstrating that the student has passed a state authorized examination that the state recognizes as the equivalent of a high school diploma.

A high school graduate (under the age of 18) can attend our program with written permission from a parent or guardian. Individuals must meet the following requirements in order to take a Preparation Course and GED Exam.

The exam consists of five different subject sections taken in 7.5 hours:

  • Language Arts - Reading
  • Language Arts - Writing
  • Mathematics (Part 1 and 2)
  • Science
  • Social Studies

The score ranges from a minimum to 200 to a maximum of 800 on each subject section. The minimum required on each section is 410. The total minimum required for all subject sections is 2050. Try your best to score higher on subjects that are more familiar. Individuals who fail the exam as a whole or a section may do retakes until successful completion.
