GED Classes Seattle, Washington

Listed here are all GED® prep class locations and testing sites in the Seattle area. Washington uses the computer-based GED exam for its HSE (high school equivalency) testing program.

The GED exam is given online and at certified Washington State GED test centers.

HSE testing offers people who couldn’t graduate high school one more chance to acquire an equivalent credential.

The GED exam comprises of tests in four subject areas: Literacy, Math, Science, and Social studies.

You have the freedom to complete these four subtests or modules one at a time. No need to take it all in one session.

Testing happens at a level that’s similar to what HS seniors are expected to command upon graduation.

In the past, online GED testing had never been an option. You always needed to show up at an official GED testing center in person.

This has changed now, however, with the launch of the online proctored GED test. Learn more below at the bottom of this page.

Introducing the online GED exam

In earlier days, taking the GED exam online had never been possible. To get hold of your GED diploma, you always had to show up, in-person, at an official, state-recognized Washington State GED testing center.

This has changed now with the introduction of an online proctored GED test-taking option. Qualifying students who choose to take the GED exam in an online format will see a proctor who will monitor online if they do it all in accordance with some pretty strict regulations. For more information, please go to this page: Introducing the online GED exam.
