Protect yourself from fraud

You must appear in person, at a testing center. The GED® test is not online.

In an era where everything’s on the Internet, high school diplomas and credentials are easily found. But the GED® test and credential are not online.

There are hundreds of websites offering high school diplomas, GED® credentials, and other degrees. What they don’t tell you is the “accredited degree” they’re offering is practically worthless. These sites are looking to make a quick buck at your expense—and they’re charging anywhere from $50 to $500 to do it. Learn more about how to spot a scam and where to earn a real GED® test credential.

Have you been a victim of GED® test or credential fraud? We’re trying to protect our testing program and people like you who need the credential to attend college or get a job. We will track reports to identify repeat offenders so we can report them to law enforcement agencies.

Report fraud to GED Testing Service here.

In order for an official complaint to be opened, you must file a complaint with a local official like the police, state attorney general offices, or the Better Business Bureau.

Remember, if it seems too good to be true…it probably is. Let’s work together to combat online fraud.

Note: The GED® test cannot be taken online. You must be in an Official GED Testing Center™ to take the real GED® test.
