The General Educational Development (GED®) measures a person’s academic skills and knowledge in four content areas: Reasoning through Language Arts, Mathematical Reasoning, Science, and Social Studies. The GED is fully aligned with college and career readiness standards. Upon successful completion of all four modules, a high school equivalency is awarded. For more information on the GED, visit https://ged.com/.
You must register an account with GED® Testing Services at https://ged.com/. Once your registration is complete, you may schedule and pay for your exam through the GED® site. When you schedule, you will see the GED® Scheduling Guidelines. It is important to read these. In addition to the information provided, be aware that the SFSC Testing Center guidelines also apply. You have the flexibility of scheduling one test at a time, multiple tests in one setting, or the entire exam in one setting. You must earn a minimum of 145 points on each module to earn your high school equivalency. A copy of your GED® transcriptions and State of Florida high school diploma is sent via secure email to each student who passes the GED® test. If you are an SFSC Adult Education student or plan on attending SFSC, forward the secure email to: RecordsTranscripts@southflorida.edu. Please note, this exam is only offered on the SFSC Highlands Campus.
The cost is $32 per module or $128 for the entire exam.
Testing candidates may test three times on the same subject with no wait period; you may not test in the same day. After the third attempt, there is a 30 day waiting period between retakes. The discounted rate for retakes is $12; valid for twelve months after the initial test attempt. These fees are subject to change so always consult https://ged.com/ for their current exam fees.
