OPTION 1: Use Vouchers to accept cash, checks, and money orders

Your testing center can sell vouchers for students to use as payment. 

How it works for your program

To purchase vouchers, visit the Voucher Store. You must pay with a credit card or you can request a credit line. When you request a credit line, it must be approved before vouchers can be purchased. Credit line approvals may take five to seven business days.

OPTION 2: Use a Testing Center Credit Line to accept cash, checks and money orders

If your testing center is delivering the GED® test, you can request a test center credit line, which can be used as a form of payment when scheduling a student’s test.

How it works for your program

To use this form of payment, you must be a testing center and must schedule students directly (no online scheduling available.)

When scheduling a test, the testing center must pick “Test Center Credit” as the form of payment. Enter any discount codes, if applicable, and complete the transaction. Remember to cancel scheduled tests if a student is unable to attend.
