GED Classes Columbus, Georgia

This is a complete listing of GED® prep locations and testing facilities in the Columbus region. In Georgia, you’ll have to pass the computerized GED test to earn your high school equivalency (HSE) diploma.

HSE testing provides adults who didn’t graduate high school with an extra option to earn an equivalent degree.

The GED measures knowledge at a level that is comparable to what students learn during four years in high school.

The GED has four subtests (modules) in literacy, social studies, math, and science that can be taken separately.

There was no online GED testing option You were required to come to a state-approved GED testing site and take the four subtests in person.

The introduction of a new online GED test-taking option, however, has changed this. You can read more at the bottom of this page.

Introducing the online GED exam

Until recently. taking the computer-based GED test was exclusively available at state-approved GED testing centers. There simply was no option to take the GED online. If you were looking to earn a Georgia GED diploma, your personal appearance was required if you wanted to take and pass the GED modules.

Bur now, with the arrival of a new online proctored GED test, this has changed. When you use this online testing format, an online GED proctor will help you with everything while simultaneously checking if all goes according to strict rules. To learn more, go to this page: ‘Online GED testing option introduced.’
