Here we list all GED prep sites and testing centers in Elmira and neighboring areas. New York is using the GED exam for the state’s High School Equivalency testing program.
In the period 2014-2021, New York State was using the TASC exam for this purpose, but the TASC program was not continued. Earlier TASC passing scores are also good for your GED!
The High School Equivalency (HSE) program offers people who quit high school before graduation the opportunity to earn an equivalent degree.
The GED® test measures basic knowledge at a level that is expected of a graduating HS senior.
GED testing occurs through four subtests in these subject areas: math, science, literacy (writing & reading combined), and social studies.
To sit for the GED test in New York, you’ll have to show up at a state-approved testing center. Most states also offer an online GED testing option for qualifying test-takers, but that’s not (yet) an option in New York.
In New York, GED testing is free but only available to state residents.

GED In New York State
New York said goodbye to the TASC exam at the end of 2021 and went back to the GED (General Education Development) exam. The TASC exam was offered both on paper and on a computer, whereas the GED is entirely computer-formatted. This actually makes a lot of sense because, these days, there’s hardly any position out there that will not require applicants to master at least basic computer and keyboarding skills. More GED information can be found here: GED testing in New York.
The GED program is developed to help persons 19 years of age or older who never completed their regular high school education. The state picks up the tab for its residents’ GED testing as one of only four states. Under-age applicants may also qualify if they meet strict requirements. Please contact a major perp or testing site.
