In this article, you can find all GED® prep facilities and testing sites in the Willmar area. In Minnesota, you need to pass the GED exam to obtain your HSE (high school equivalency) diploma.
GED testing is possible online and at certified Minnesota GED prep facilities.
HSE testing gives people who never completed high school the chance to earn an equivalent degree.
The HSE exam measures skills and competencies at the level of high school students upon graduation.
The GED exam is entirely computer-formatted and includes four individual subtests in Literacy, Math, Social Studies, and Science.
You can take the four GED subtests one at a time. You don’t have to complete all four tests in one session.
It used to be that online GED testing was no option. You were required to come to a state-approved GED test center and sit for the tests in person.
Recently, however, we saw the introduction of a new, online GED test-taking option. See more below.

Online GED testing now possible
Until recently, you never were able to take the four GED subtests over the internet. If you wanted to acquire your Minnesota GED credential, you had to appear, in person, at one of Minnesota’s state-approved GED test facilities and pass the four GED modules.
Now, with the arrival of a new online proctored GED testing option, all of that has changed. To learn more about these significant changes, visit: ‘Online GED testing welcomed’.
