GED Classes Aiken, South Carolina

This post includes an overview of GED® prep sites and testing centers in the Aiken area. South Carolina is using the GED exam for its high school equivalency (HSE) testing program.

GED testing is available online and at state-designated test centers.

The HSE exam offers adults who never completed high school the chance to obtain an equivalent credential.

The GED is computer-based and has four independent modules (subtests) in Social Studies, Language Arts, Science, and Math.

You have the option to sit for the four GED modules one at a time. So prepare for one subject test, pass that part, and move on to the next subtest.

For details about the recently launched GED online proctored test, check the bottom of this page.

Introducing an online GED testing option

The GED exam was, until recently, not offered online. To secure their high school equivalency diploma, students had to come, in person, to an official South Carolina HSE (high school equivalency) testing center.

But the introduction of an online proctored GED test has now made an end to that. More information can be found in this post: ‘Introducing online GED testing’.
