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.
