GED Classes McAllen, Texas

This page includes a full listing of GED® prep classes and testing sites in the McAllen region. Texas is using the GED test for the state’s High School Equivalency (HSE) testing program.

The GED exam can be taken in an online proctored format or at an official Texas HSE testing facility.

Logan got his GED Diploma 6 weeks after joining Onsego.

HSE testing gives adults who never finished high school another shot at securing an equivalent degree.

The GED test measures basic knowledge at a level comparable to that of graduating HS seniors.

The computer-based GED has four subtests in Math, Social Studies, Science, and Literacy that may be taken separately.

Until recently, there was no online GED testing possibility. Testing needed to be done at one of Texas’ official HSE testing sites.

This, however, has now changed with the launch of an online GED testing option. For more information, check the bottom of this page.

Introducing the online proctored GED test

In the past, the GED exam always had to be taken in-person at one of Texas’ state-designated HSE (high school equivalency) testing facilities. There was just no online GED testing option. But now, this has come to an end as we saw the launch of an online proctored GED testing option.

For more information about the new online proctored GED test, visit Introducing a new online proctored GED testing option.
