GED in Arizona

Arizona is offering the computer-based GED® exam for the state’s high school equivalency (HSE) testing program.

The GED program offers adults who didn’t finish high school the chance to earn a credential that’s equivalent to a high school diploma.

The GED test fee in Arizona is $120 for the complete test (computer-based) or $30 per module. Retesting is $20 per subject test.

The GED test passing score is 145 points on each module (subtest), so at least 580 overall. You can take one subject test at the time.

Your scores on the four modules (Math, Science, Social studies, and Language Arts) do not expire.

In Arizona, in addition to the four subtests, you also have to pass the state’s Civics Test.
