This article includes an overview of all GED® prep locations and testing facilities in the Salina region. The state of Kansas is using the GED exam for it’s High School Equivalency (HSE) testing program.
GED testing can be done online and at state-certified test centers.
The HSE program offers adults who did not complete their high school curriculum the chance to earn an equivalent degree.
HSE testing happens at a level that’s comparable to that of graduating HS seniors.
The GED exam includes four independent subtests that can be taken separately.
The four GED subtests cover the fields of Math, Literacy, Science, and Social Studies.
In the past, GED testing over the internet was not offered. Test-takers were required to come to one of Kansas’ state-designated testing sites.
Now, however, the arrival of an online GED testing option has changed that. Read more below.
