This article includes a full listing of GED® prep facilities and testing sites in and around Mount Vernon. The four-test GED exam measures knowledge at a similar level as may be expected of high school students upon graduation.
The GED exam is available online and at official GED test centers.
The fully computerized GED subtests are in the academic fields of literacy, math, science, and social studies.
The four GED subtests (modules) can be taken separately. There’s no requirement to deal with the GED battery in one take.
The GED test assesses knowledge and skills at a level that’s similar to that of HS seniors upon graduation.
In the past, online GED testing was never an option. Personal appearance at a state-designated testing site was required.
This, however, has now changed with the arrival of an online GED testing option. Learn more at the bottom of this post.

For almost 80 years (the program started in 1942), the GED program has provided a way to acquire not only personal satisfaction but also to get access to higher education and better employment possibilities for millions of Americans who, for whatever reason, never finished their high school education.
The GED exam is another way for adults who have not finished high school to demonstrate that they have comparably developed knowledge and skills as those who did.
Practically all colleges and universities recognize GED score reports to be equivalent to high school transcripts. If students would like to get federal financial support, they are required to have a high school or GED diploma, or show ‘Ability to Benefit’. Nearly all employers accept the GED diploma in lieu of a common high school diploma as well.
Check out this website’s free video lessons as well, a fantastic way to get ahead fast! GED holders earn, on average, some $9,600 more annually than people who don’t have the credential so what’s holding you back? Your GED diploma will certainly lead to better career opportunities and a better life in general.
Welcoming an online GED test-taking option
In the past, taking the four GED subtests via the internet had never been an option. If you wanted to acquire your GED diploma, you were required to come, in-person, to one of Washington State’s designated, official GED testing sites.
This has changed now. Recently, we witnessed the arrival of a new online GED testing option. Students who qualify for online GED testing will see an online proctor who monitors if they do everything according to the rules. To learn more about this interesting new development, go to Welcoming the online proctored GED test.
