Process for GED testing:

Wiregrass Georgia Technical College is an official GED testing center. Candidates must complete demographics information and verify eligibility to test before permission is granted to schedule GED tests. Pre-registration and advance payments are required. Successful completion of the GED tests qualifies an individual for a state of Georgia General Educational Development (GED) credential. GED credentials are accepted by industry, government, licensing boards, technical colleges, and employers as the equivalent to a high school education. For GED testing information visit the Adult Education Office or GED testing official on campus.

The GED test consists of four parts covering the following subject areas: Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies. These tests are designed to enable people who did not graduate from high school to demonstrate that they have acquired the knowledge and skills usually associated with the completion of a four-year high school program of study. If an individual wishes to take the GED tests, he or she must be 18 years of age or older and the high school class of which he or she was most recently a member must have graduated.

Cost

$160 for the complete test ($40 per test section). Scholarships may be available to eligible students. The four GED test Battery consists of: Reasoning through Language Arts, Mathematical Reasoning, Science, and Social Studies.
