GED Classes Mankato, Minnesota

Listed on this page are all GED® prep locations and test facilities in the Mankato area. Minnesota is using the computer-based GED test for its HSE (high school equivalency) testing program.

GED testing can be done both online and at state-certified test centers,

HSE testing is for adults who did not complete high school and gives them the opportunity to acquire an equivalent degree.

The GED exam measures proficiency at a level similar to that of graduating high school students

The GED is fully computerized and consists of four separate subtests in Literacy, Social studies, Math, and Science.

You can take the four GED subtests (modules) separately. No need to complete the GED battery in one take.

Online GED testing was, until recently, no option. You needed to show up at an official Minnesota GED test center and take the four subtests in person. This has changed with the arrival of a new online proctored GED testing option. Read more below.

All across North America, the GED diploma is recognized in the same way as a conventional HS degree.

Online GED testing introduced 

You could, until recently, not take the GED test over the internet. To earn a GED, you had to appear, personally, at an official Minnesota GED test center and deal with the four GED tests face-to-face. Now, all of this has changed with the introduction of an online GED test-taking option. More information can be found here: ‘Online GED testing’.
