This is an overview of all GED® prep classes and testing facilities in the Bentonville region. In Arkansas, individuals looking to earn a high school equivalency (HSE) degree, need to pass the four subtests of the GED exam.
The four individual GED modules (subtests) can be taken online or at one of Arkansas’ state-approved GED test centers.
The GED exam offers adults who did not finish high school the chance to acquire an equivalent degree.
The fully computerized GED exam contains four separate modules (subtests) in math, social studies, literacy, and science.
The GED is modular, meaning you can take the tests one at a time if you wish.
Testing occurs at a level that’s comparable to that of high school seniors upon graduation.
The GED credential qualifies for a college education and will surely lead to better employment options.

Northwest Arkansas Community College
1 College Dr – Bentonville – Arkansas 72712 – (479) 986.6911
A few years back, Northwest Arkansas Community College’s department of adult education left Rogers to move its main campus in Bentonville. The adult education department had been located at St. May’s Center for Nonprofits for 4 years, and this was the third location in 12 years. Before, it had been housed in Rogers at North Second Street and at Woods Lane.
The relocation to Bentonville is done to attract more students. Every year, some 3,000 adults sign up for basic education, GED classes, or English language at NWACC’s department of adult education, and the school is hoping and expecting that more adults will enroll in higher education due to on-campus offered services and exposure to the school’s programs.
If done right, on-campus adult education will be advantageous to both students and the school, and it will help adults feel far more comfortable about considering going to college. It is essential that these students feel that they really are part of the school, NWACC officials say.
The school wants these students to feel as welcome as other students on the main campus, and the college relocated the department of adult education to the 2nd floor of the school’s Shewmaker Center for Workforce Technologies.

Introducing an online GED test
Sitting for the GED exam via the internet is now also possible. It used to be that test-takers had to report to one of Arkansas’ state-designated GED test centers personally to secure an Arkansas GED diploma but all of that has changed.
When taking the GED exam online, a proctor will guides students through the entire testing process and see if they do it all in line with the rules. More information is found here: introducing the online proctored GED exam.

Four individual tests
The GED exam is made up of four separate tests that can be taken one (or more) at a time. So you can prepare for (and pay for) one subject test, pass that section, and move on to the next subject field.
