Posted here are all GED® preparatory classes and testing sites in the Green Bay region.
Wisconsin uses the GED exam for the state’s high school equivalency (HSE) testing program.
The HSE program gives adults who dropped out of high school an opportunity to earn an equivalent degree.
The GED test includes four separate subtests (or modules) that can be taken (and paid for) one at a time within a 2-year time frame.
The four computer-based subtests are in the subject fields of Math, Science, Literacy, and Social Studies.
The GED is a challenging exam. Testing is done at a level that compares to that of graduating high school seniors.
Online GED testing is NOT an option. You must come to a designated Wisconsin GE test center to sit for the tests in person.
You may take one (or more) of the four modules at a time as long as you finish the GED battery within two years.

Who is the GED for?
The new computer-based GED (General Education Development) exam is specially developed for men and women who never finished high school and gives them a second chance to obtain an equivalent diploma.
The certificate that you will be awarded when you pass the Wisconsin GED exam is seen as the equivalency of a high school diploma by official institutions, employers, and colleges all through the U.S. Mind you that the GED exam is not available online, you must go to a designated Wisconsin GED testing site.
To read all about the reduced passing requirements (lowered to 145 in 2016), check out this GED News post and see also this post that links to all U.S. GED prep locations.
Advantages of the GED diploma
There are several few advantages of securing your GED certificate: finding a (better) job is easier. Most unfilled jobs ask for a high school diploma or similar. Practically every employer and recruiting agency regard the GED certificate at the value as a high school degree. Furthermore, your self-esteem will be boosted.
By acquiring your GED diploma, you will be proud to have accomplished something that will improve the life. You have demonstrated that you can do what you have set your mind on. Last, but surely not least, the GED degree allows you get into colleges and universities.
Is the GED available online?
Despite all recent technological innovations, the GED exam is NOT available online. There still is the requirement that you come to a state-certified GED test center to take the four tests in person, but you have the option to take each test at the time you feel ready to do so, you really don’t have to do everything in one take.
There are quite some websites that try to fool you and want to sell you their so-called ” GED certificates” or whatever they label it. These sites are a scam and their issued documents are worthless. There just is not a possibility to get your credential online. Getting all set for the GED test via online programs is fine, though, and you may very well benefit from the free WI online GED class that is available on this website.
