Listed here are all GED® class locations and test sites in the Medford region.
Oregon is using the computer-formatted GED exam for its high school equivalency (HSE) testing program.
The HSE program offers adults without a high school diploma a second chance at earning an equivalent degree.
The GED exam assesses knowledge at a level that compares to that of HS students upon graduation.
There are four GED subtests (or modules) in the subject areas of Science, Math, Literacy, and Social Studies.
You have the freedom to take one (or more) subtests at a time but you need to complete the entire battery within two years.
Online GED testing is NO option. Websites with a different message are fraudulent.

For who is the GED?
The GED (General Education Development) program is developed to help adults who never completed high school in acquiring a credential that compares to a high school diploma. The GED diploma is all over America recognized as equivalent to a high school diploma and accepted as such by practically all U.S. governmental bodies, employers, and colleges. To see if you qualify, go to Oregon GED Testing.
Check out also this page that links to all available GED programs in the US. The GED passing score was lowered to 145 two years after the new version was launched across the nation. You can read all the details in this GED Scoring News article.
Is the GED available online?
No, you cannot take the GED exam online. You need to go to a state-approved official GED testing site and take the four GED tests in person. Please be aware of scam internet sites that try to sell you their so-called ‘ GED diplomas.’ These con artists only want to steal your money and their documents are worthless. Studying for your GED credential over the internet is a great option, but the GED exam is just not available online.
GED – what’s new
The GED exam includes four tests and is computer-based. Passing the GED (General Educational Development) exam gives applicants a document that is equivalent to a high school diploma, and earning the GED diploma allows students to be eligible for a wide range of financial support programs.
The GED exam is really a challenge, not only for those who quit high school prematurely but also for workers who earlier had jobs in secure areas. Now that their jobs are wiped out because of the recession or changes our economy went through, they now need to apply for jobs that call for a secondary degree.
One GED test at a time
The GED exam has four separate tests and students can take one test whenever they feel ready within a 2-year time window. However, they also can take all four computer-based tests at once if they can find a test center that can handle that. More than 95 percent of all employers hire GED graduates just as they employ high school graduates with regard to earnings and job advancement opportunities.
The four GED tests
The GED program enables you to earn your high school equivalency diploma if you pass the four tests on the academic subject fields of Literacy, Social Studies, Science, and Mathematics. Preparation is crucial, so contact one of the sites listed above, check out your local bookstore or library for written study material, or take a free online preparation course like the one available through this website.
Once you have obtained your GED exam you can continue your education at a college, university, or trade school. Here are some Medford area schools of higher education:

*) Rogue Community College
Rogue Community College (RCC) is offering GED preparation classes at all three of its Learning Centers (Riverside Campus – Medford; Table Rock Campus – White City; and Redwood Campus – Grants Pass). Applicants in the Illinois Valley have the chance to become prepared for the GED exam at the Kerby Learning Center.
RCC provides ABE (Adult Basic Education) and GED prep classes to persons who don’t have a secondary credential and are no less than 16 years of age. Those applicants who are 16 or 17 years old, must submit a ‘Referral for Instruction’ from their last attended school before they can start classes at Rogue. In doubt, contact the school for advice.
The school’s GED preparation program costs $65 per term and is available at the school’s learning centers. New applicants must first attend a registration/orientation session and also take a test to see what their level is, so they can be placed properly.
If you want to come to one of these orientation meetings, you can contact your nearest RCC learning center.
