GED Classes Albany, Georgia

Listed here are all GED® prep class sites and test centers in the Albany region. Georgia uses the GED (General Education Development) exam for high school equivalency (HSE) testing.

The HSE test gives adults who never completed high school the opportunity to obtain an equivalent diploma.

The GED has four tests (modules) in Literacy, Math, Science, and Social Studies that can be taken separately.

The GED exam was not offered online. You had to go to a state-approved GED testing site and take the four subtests in person. However, with the introduction of an online proctored GED testing option, that has changed. Read more below.

The four GED subtests measure your skills and knowledge at a level that’s similar to that of graduation HS students.

Albany Technical College
1704 S Slappey Boulevard, Albany, GA 31701, Phone: 229-430-1620
Albany Technical College reinstated two programs that allow for earning a GED (high school equivalency) credential or a high school diploma while at the same time attending college-level classes.

The programs, ‘Ability To Benefit’ and ‘Move on When Ready’, will benefit students and improve the school’s enrollment numbers. The program ‘Ability to Benefit’ allows students who are studying towards their GED diploma to get federal support (Pell Grant) while they are taking college classes.

The program ‘Ability To Benefit’ was also reintroduced, and offers students the chance to earn a secondary education credential while attending technical college classes. Nowadays, practically everybody needs a high school diploma or GED credential. These programs allow them to earn their high school or GED diploma while earning college credit at the same time.

A new online GED testing option

Taking the computer-based GED exam needed to be done at state-designated GED testing facilities. There was just no option to take the GED exam online. If you wanted to earn your Georgia GED diploma, personal appearance was required to take and pass the four GED subtests.

Now, all of that has changed with the arrival of a new, online, proctored GED exam. When using this format, an online proctor will guide you through the test-taking process and see if all happens according to the rules and regulations. Check out this post: ‘Online GED testing option’ for more detailed information.
