GED in Alabama

Alabama is using the GED® test for its HSE (high school equivalency) testing program.

The Alabama GED test is $120 for the entire battery of four sub-tests ($30 per section).

The four GED testing fields are Science, Math, Social Studies, and Language Arts.

The GED subtests may be taken separately, you don’t have to sit for the entire battery in one take.

You can check your test results right after you took the exam.

If you didn’t pass a subject area of the GED exam, you can retake that part, but you are required to wait at least 30 days before you are allowed to retest for that subject.

For the first two retests, you need to pay $10 provided that you retake the subjects within one year.

The GED test can only be taken at state-approved testing sites, online testing is NOT possible.

Alabama GED Requirements

You must be at least 16 years of age to qualify for the GED exam or for GED prep courses. 16 or 17 years old, however, must meet strict requirements. Please check with a prep facility or a GED testing site near you.

You cannot be the holder of a secondary education degree, nor are you allowed to be partaking in another educational project as well.
