This article shows you all GED prep locations and test locations in and around Vernal. At the sites listed here, committed instructors will give you the best guidance so you can take the GED test effectively.
Test-takers can sit for the GED exam online and at official Utah test facilities.
The GED® test measures skills and knowledge at the same level that is expected of high school grads.
The exam includes four independent subtests (modules) that measure a test-taker’s knowledge in the fields of
- Social Studies
- English Language
The GED (General Education Development) diploma is all across North America recognized and accepted as the equivalency of a high school diploma by recruiting agencies, employers, and schools of higher education.
You can take the four GED subsets one by one. You don’t need to complete the entire GED battery in one take.
In the past, online GED testing was never an option. You had to report to an official Utah GED testing site and sit for the four GED modules in person.
Now, this has changed as we saw the arrival of a new online proctored GED testing option. Check the bottom of this page for more details.

Launching The Online GED Test
It used to be that the GED test was not offered online. If you wanted to earn your GED diploma, you had to appear in person, at one of Utah’s official, state-approved testing centers.
This has now ended, though, with the introduction of a new online way to deal with the four GED modules. A proctor will monitor online if everything happens in line with the regulations. For more information, check out ‘Introducing the online GED test.’
The GED test comes with four separate subtests (modules) in the subject areas of Literacy (Reasoning Through Language Arts), Math (Mathematical Reasoning), Science, and Social Studies.
These days, it is more important than ever before to get hold of a secondary education credential. If more applicants are competing for the same job, holding a high school or a GED diploma shows employers you possess the capacity and the right mentality to perform a job well.
The GED diploma is your ticket to a college education, and the credential will certainly result in better job options and job promotions or enable you to be successful in a new career.
The GED Diploma (also referred to as the Utah High School Equivalency Diploma) shows that the holder successfully completed an alternative route toward a high school level of education. The four GED subtests are scored on a 100-200 scale. The passing standard is 145 on each module (subtest), so an overall score of at least 580 must be attained.
- 100-144 – below passing
- 145-164 – HS equivalency passing score
- 165-174 – college-ready score
- 175-200 – college-ready plus college credit score
Who Qualifies For GED Testing?
All adult learners 18 and over who never obtained a high school credential can sit for the GED exam. For underage GED testers (16 & 17 years old) counts that, if their class has not graduated, they must be officially taken out of school. The application process for these testers involves high school counselors, principals, and adult education programs.
This is to make sure that the potential applicant and the parents or guardians will be fully aware of all possible consequences of quitting high school early to pursue a GED. Underage testers are required to submit an authorization form that can be obtained from public high school counselors, school districts, and other accredited schools in Utah.
Applicants 16 years of age must additionally attend an adult education program to verify the test-taker commands academic readiness required to take the GED exam, though this doesn’t guarantee the tester will pass.
