Here is an overview of GED® prep classes and test sites in the greater Bemidji region. Minnesota is using the computer-based GED exam for its high school equivalency (HSE) testing program.
GED testing can be done online and at certified Minnesota GED test centers.
The HSE test offers adults that never completed high school an extra chance to acquire an equivalent credential.
The GED exam contains four individual tests in the academic fields of Science, Social Studies, Math, and Literacy.
You can take one (or more) of the GED subtest (module) when you think you are ready to do so. No need to sit for the entire GED battery in one take.
It used to be that GED testing could be exclusively done at state-designated testing centers. There was no online GED testing option, but this has now changed with the arrival of an online proctored GED test. More information can be found at the bottom of this page.

A new online GED test option welcomed
Until recently, GED testing over the internet was not available. To acquire your GED diploma, your personal appearance was needed at one of Minnesota’s official GED testing centers where you had to sit for the four GED subtests face-to-face. Now, that changed as a new online proctored GED testing format was introduced. To read more, check out ‘Introducing a new online GED test option’.
