GED Classes Charleston, South Carolina

Posted here are all GED® prep locations and testing sites in the Charleston, South Carolina area. South Carolina uses the GED exam for the purpose of HSE (high school equivalency) testing.

GED testing is available online and at state-certified testing facilities.

HSE testing provides persons who didn’t graduate from high school the chance to secure an equivalent degree.

The GED must be taken entirely on a computer and comes with four subtests in Math, Social Studies, Science, and Literacy.

You have the option to take one (or more) of the four GED subtests at a time. Completion in one take is not required.

For information about the recently launched online proctored GED testing option, check the bottom of this post.

Welcoming online GED testing

In earlier days, GED testing was never an option online. Students looking to earn their high school equivalency credential had to come personally to a state-designated South Carolina testing center.

The recent introduction, however, of a new online proctored GED testing option has put an end to that. For more information, check out this article: ‘Introducing an online proctored GED exam’.
