To get ready for the GED test, register with GED Testing Service® by creating an online account at www.ged.com, your start-to-finish tool for the GED® program. Once you have created your online account, you will be taken to a new portal called MyGED™. There you will find information about the new test, connect to study resources, tutorials and testing tips, pre-tests and college and career information. You will also schedule testing appointments and pay for your tests on your MyGED™ page. Then come to the testing center for your appointments, pass the four tests and earn your credential!
PLEASE NOTE: With the executive order from Governor Polis and the stay at-home order from the Tri-County Health Department, the testing center will not be able to open as anticipated next week. We will remain closed until further notice.

GED Test Content
The GED test has four subjects:
- Science (90 minutes)
- Mathematics (120 minutes)
- Social Studies (90 minutes)
- Reasoning through Language Arts (155 minutes)
(Cost: $37.50 per subject)
- Candidates must be at least 17 years of age (16 year-olds apply for an age waiver through the state GED office)
- You must have a valid, government-issued picture ID with date of birth and signature. When you register with GED Testing Service®, enter your name exactly as it appears on your ID.
Please note: You are required to bring your ID to each testing appointment. If you do not have your ID, you will not be allowed to test and forfeit your original payment. You will have to re-schedule your testing appointment on MyGED™.
- We suggest you start with the free practice tests available on MyGED™ at the bottom of the Study tab.
- We highly recommend that you take GED Ready™: The Official Practice Test also on the MyGED™ Study tab.
In addition to familiarizing yourself with the format, content and computer skills needed for the 2014 test, GED Ready™ gives you diagnostic information to help improve your scores. GED Ready™ is $6 per subject.
- GED Testing Service® has implemented a discounted re-test program for the 2014 GED. Every student is eligible for two discounted retakes for each GED® subject taken. The discounted retakes ($17.50) are valid for twelve months after the initial test attempt. Students can test three times on the same subject with no wait time between appointments. Then there is a 60-day waiting period before your next attempt on that subject.
- All tests are available in English and Spanish.
- We recommend you take just one or two tests per day to perform as well as possible.
- No computer? No credit or debit card? Other questions? No problem! Contact us and we’ll be happy to help!
