Posted in this article are all GED® prep locations and testing centers in the Beaumont region.
The GED test can be taken at state-approved HSE testing centers or online.
HSE testing gives persons who quit high school prematurely the chance to secure an equivalent credential.
The GED exam is totally computerized and available in English and Spanish.
The GED test has four subtests in Social Studies, Science, Literacy, and Math that may be dealt with one subtest at a time.
Until recently, taking the HSE test online was not possible. Test-takers were required to come in person to one of Texas’ official testing sites.
This has now changed, however, as we saw the arrival of the online proctored GED testing option. Read more at the bottom of this page.

Welcoming the online GED exam
Until recently, if you were looking to sit for the GED test, you had to show up personally at a state-approved Texas high school equivalency testing facility. There had never been an option to sit for the HSE exam in an online format.
But now, this has changed with the launch of the GED online testing options. If you want to read more about the newly launched online proctored GED exam, visit ‘Welcoming an online GED testing option’.
