This article contains an overview of all GED® prep sites and test centers in the Lincoln region. In Nebraska, adults wishing to earn their high school equivalency (HSE diploma) must pass the GED test.
GED testing can be done online and at state-approved GED test centers.
HSE testing gives men and women who didn’t graduate high school the opportunity to earn an equivalent credential.
The computer-based GED exam measures knowledge at a level that compares to that of graduating high school students.
There are four independent GED modules (subtests) in literacy, math, science, and social studies that may be taken one (or more) at a time.
Online testing was, until recently, never an option. Test-takers had to show up in person at an official Nebraska GED testing site.
Now, however, we’ve witnessed the launch of an online proctored GED testing option. Check the bottom of this page for more information.

Introducing an online GED testing option
In recent days, online GED testing was not possible. If you wished to earn your Nebraska GED credential, you were required to show up personally at one of the state’s designated GED test centers and pass the four GED modules.
But now, we have seen some great new developments as an online proctored GED test was launched. So, fortunately, that changed. Check out the page ‘Introducing online GED testing’ to learn more about this great new opportunity.
