This article comes with a full listing of GED® prep locations and testing sites in the Harlingen region. Texas uses the computer-based GED test for its High School Equivalency (HSE) testing program.
The GED program is for adult learners who quit high school before graduating and offers them the chance to earn an equivalent degree.
The GED exam measures knowledge and proficiency at the same level that’s expected of high school grads.
The General Education Development (GED) exam has four subtests (modules) in Math, Social Studies, Science, and Literacy.
The GED exam is administered exclusively on a computer and can be taken in English or Spanish.
In the past, online GED testing was never an option but that has changed with the launch of an online GED exam option. Read more at the bottom of this page.

GED online test introduced
It used to be that the GED exam could only be taken in-person at an official Texas high school equivalency (HSE) test facility. Online HSE testing simply was not possible. But recently, we witnessed the launch of online proctored testing for the GED exam.
For more information on the recently introduced online proctored GED test, visit Introducing online proctored GED testing.

GED price tag
With the GED test, you can pay as you go, meaning you pay for each GED subject individually when you’re ready to take a subtest. The Texas fee is $36.25 per individual subtest, or $145 total.
Registration is a simple process. You’ll have to create your account for MyGED at the website www.GED.com. Here, you’ll also get information on local policies, scheduling your tests, how to request accommodations, making payments, and so on.
Scheduling can be done 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Just log in and click on “Schedule Test”. When you’ve completed the questions, you can choose a testing location, your preferred language, which subject test you want to take, and the date and time you prefer. You have the option to schedule one test at a time.
You can take each subject test 3 times without any waiting time restrictions. After your third attempt, however, there’ll be a 60-day wait period before you can retest that subject again.
