Free GED Test in Texas

Thanks to a generous Texas Workforce Commission grant, qualifying test-takers can take the GED exam at no cost in Texas.

To be eligible for free testing, applicants must be Texas residents, at least 21 years of age, and not already have a high school or equivalent credential. The link will lead you to an article with further explanation.

Welcoming Online GED Testing

Until recently, to sit for the GED test, you were required to show up in person at one of Texas’ state-recognized high school equivalency test centers. Online testing was never an option.

This has now changed as we’ve witnessed the arrival of an online proctored GED test. If you want to get informed about this great development, visit ‘Introducing the online GED test.’
