This is an overview of all GED prep classes and testing facilities in the Alliance region. In Nebraska, you need to pass the four GED subtests to earn your high school equivalency diploma.
The GED exam is available online and at certified Nebraska test centers.
The test measures academic skills and knowledge at the same level that’s expected of high school graduates.
The GED® contains four individual tests in these subject areas: literacy, math, science, and social studies.
You can take (and pay for) one of the GED subtests at a time. No need to complete the GED battery in one take.
In the past, online GED testing was never available. Your personal appearance at one of Nebraska’s state-approved test centers was required.
Recently, though, we saw an interesting development with the launch of an online proctored GED exam. Read more below.
The Nebraska GED testing fee is $144 (or $36 per test), both for online and on-site testing.

Online Proctored GED Testing Introduced
In earlier times, taking the GED test was never possible online. If you wanted to get hold of a Nebraska GED diploma, you were required to come to one of the state’s official GED testing centers in person and pass the four GED subtests.
Recently, however, we saw some great developments with the launch of an online proctored version of the GED exam. So that has all changed. If you want to read more about this fantastic development, check out this page: ‘Introducing the online GED test.’
The tests of the General Education Development program, also known as the GED, are developed to measure an applicant’s knowledge and skills, and the test is for adults who never finished high school.
Whatever the reasons for not finishing high school, most people will find out that a secondary education credential (HS or GED diploma) is essential for getting a job and developing a career.
A high school degree or equivalency is needed as well to further academic education in college and university. The four subject fields addressed in the GED exam are Language Arts or Literacy, Social Studies, Science, and Mathematics at the level that may be expected from high school students after a four-year course of study.
The GED program is for anyone without a high school diploma, who is 18 or older, who is not attending a school program, and who wishes to earn a secondary education degree. Applicants 16 and 17 years old may also qualify if they meet strict criteria.
