GED® Testing Information



The current GED® Testing Series HAS BEEN REPLACED as of January 2, 2014. If you did not complete and pass ALL sections of the previous GED® (2002-2013 series) by December 2013, your previous scores are now invalid and you will be required to take ALL SECTIONS of the new GED® test in 2014. The cost of the GED® test is now $135.


The Counseling and Testing Center at NCTC's Gainesville Campus is a testing site for the General Educational Development (GED®) test for high school equivalency.  The GED® is offered to persons who:

  • 1) are not enrolled in high school, and

  • 2) have not graduated from high school, and

  • 3) are at least 18 years old

    *17-year-olds who are a resident of the state and who are enrolled in an approved in-school program to prepare for the high school equivalency exam may test, or 16-year-olds who are recommended by a public agency that has supervision or custody of the person under court order, enrolled in a Job Corps training program, or ordered by a justice of municipal court setting a truancy case may also qualify to test*


All GED® pre-registration activities are now online at Visit this official GED site to create your online portal with access to study tools, GED® testing sites and available test dates throughout the state, as well as your scores after testing. NCTC does not have walk-in registration for GED® testing-all processes are now online.
