GED Classes Wausau, Wisconsin

This post includes a full listing of all GED® prep facilities and test centers in the Wausau area. To earn your High School Equivalency (HSE) diploma in Wisconsin, you must pass the GED exam.

GED testing is available online and at state-approved Wisconsin GED testing sites.

The HSE program is for people who did not graduate high school. This way, they can earn an equivalent degree.

The GED exam measures knowledge at a level similar to what students must command after four years in high school.

There are four independent GED subtests in the fields of Literacy, Math, Science, and Social Studies.

You can take one (or more) of the four GED subtests at a time. No need to deal with the entire GED battery in one take.

To earn a GED, Wisconsin test-takers must pass the state’s Civics test as well, a 100-questions exam.

Until recently, taking the GED test in an online format was not possible. This has changed, however, with the launch of an online proctored GED exam. Learn more below.

The introduction of an online GED testing option

In earlier days, sitting for the GED exam on the internet was never possible. To earn your GED diploma, you had to report to one of Wisconsin’s official state-approved GED testing facilities in person.

Now, this has changed as we recently saw the introduction of an online proctored option to deal with the four GED subtests. If you qualify to take the GED test from your home, an online proctor will check if you do everything in line with the rules and regulations. To read more about this interesting development, go to this page: The introduction of an online GED testing option.
