Introducing the Official Online GED Test

Until now, students could only take the GED test at approved test centers. We are aware that some test centers remain closed or have limited appointments due to the COVID-19 pandemic. That’s why we’re offering a new Online Proctored GED Test as a pilot program in select areas of the U.S. This option is not currently available internationally. With the Online Proctored GED Test, students can take the GED test from home while securely monitored by an online proctor.

The pilot program is being rolled out in phases. During the first phase, students in the categories below will be invited by email to sign up to test online. You can also log into your GED.com to see if you are eligible. Some of these requirements may change as additional phases are rolled out.

  • Your in-person test appointment was cancelled 
  • You’ve passed 3 of 4 test subjects 
  • You’ve scored “Green” on the GED Ready practice test within the past 60 days 
  • Your state participates in online testing *

If you meet these requirements, here are some online testing essentials to keep in mind:  

  • You’ll need a computer, webcam and reliable internet — no tablets or phones.
  • You’ll need to take your test in a private room with a closed door.
  • Before scheduling and paying for the test, it’s important to run a system check to be sure that your computer meets the requirements.

Check out the video below about how online GED testing works.

Secure and reliable testing

The online GED test is monitored the entire time by a real, live proctor. It’s administered through secure OnVUE software with built-in artificial intelligence (AI) features for optimal test security.

The test content is exactly the same as the in-person version. The cost is the same as well.

It’s important to avoid fraudulent sites that may try to mislead you into paying for a fake GED online test. The official online GED test is proctored and can only be accessed through your student account at GED.com. You have to be logged in to be able to schedule and take the test. Learn more about how to recognize and avoid GED test fraud here.

Additional online resources

If you’re not eligible for online testing yet, here are some ways you can start prepping online for the GED test:

1. Online GED Preparation

If you need the guidance of a classroom setting, an online GED preparation course can help you better understand the material. 

  • GED Live features top-rated Kaplan instructors who can guide you through each subject 
  • Complete the courses at your own pace from the comfort of home
  • Recorded sessions are available on demand if you miss a live lesson 
2. Interactive Practice Questions On-the-go

GED Flash is a mobile-friendly practice tool that will help you master the exact concepts you’ll need to know to pass the GED test:

  • Thousands of interactive questions just like the ones on the real test
  • Instant step-by-step explanations to understand each answer
  • Study wherever and whenever you want with easy access from any device
3. Official Practice Tests

Online practices tests are an important way to identify your strengths and weaknesses. GED Ready will help you know what to study and get you familiar with the GED testing process. Scoring “Green” on GED Ready is one of the requirements for taking the GED test online.

  • Feel more confident on testing day if you’ve taken several practice tests 
  • Try taking more than one if you want to measure your progress 
  • As your practice score continues to improve, you’ll know your study habits are effective

There are many ways to get ready for the GED test, and we’re sure you’ll be confident when test day comes. We are rooting for you as you continue to prep. Whether your test will be taken online or in person, achieving your high school diploma will be a life-changer. 

*Please note that North Carolina and Oklahoma do not currently participate in online GED testing.

I was able to take the Online GED testing two weeks ago (English reasoning and Mathematics) but it won’t let me register for the two other subject that I have left (Science and social studies).

But things happened wasn’t able to continue etc. Will I able to qualify for online GED or so I have to do it all again? It’s no problem if I have to. The only issue I have in regarding the COVID ISSUE IS THAT I’M REALLY SCARED TO GO OUT THERE AND go into the campus to schedule and appointment or schedule and appointment and end up having to go since I’m high risk as well as my mom being worse (she’s going to start kemo therapy and her immune system is going to be really low and I don’t want to risk her of anything). But I now have the opportunity to do so if it’s online. And I really want to finally move forward. Because I want to go to college and expand my experience and knowledge with what I’m trying to do. I’m currently have an online shop to start but I want to create my own name and not use something else for it. Not to be famous, no. But create my own business with my art and slowly with it to also become and illustrator.. But the other requirements I can, will, and do have. I can do the practice tests again. As many times. But the cancelling of the appointment is something I’m just nervous about all cause of being somewhere else other than home.

  6. Hi,
    I am starting college in August and need to show high school equivalency via the GED. I have not taken any GED tests or practice tests yet but I am now ready to focus on the GED. In the description above, there are four items listed that are required to sign up for an online test in the first phase. Does that mean I need all four or can I sign up once I have the Green level on the practice test? If all four are needed for the first phase, when do you expect the next phase to be available for sign up?

    Thank you,

    Sophie Bell

I live in Maryland and I was planning to take the test, which is holding me back to attend a college and complete my dream program. I’ll appreciate if you provide me a way of registering the GED online test.
    Thanks in advance for your reply.

    Stay Safe, Faduma

  45. Could you please clarify an important point: To be eligible to take the GED online, do you need to have ALL FOUR of the criteria or do you need to have SOME of the criteria? I have students from Washington State (which is participating in the online GED tests) who have scored a “Green” on the GED Ready practice test within 60 days. However, as many of these students are new to the process, they have not passed three of four tests (or do not need more than one or two tests) and had not already schedule a test that was canceled. Thank you for this clarification.

    1. Hi Kirsten. Right now priority will go to students who online have one GED test and have scored Green on their remaining GED Ready. As the pilot continues, students that don’t meet the initial requirements for the first phases may be extended an invitation to test. We can not give you a specific date for when you will receive your invitation but we do encourage you to keep studying and preparing for the test.

  46. Hi,

    Do you have to meet all the requirements to be able to test online?
    I started GED classes in January. I didn’t get a chance to pass any tests at the moment. I scored green on the Science practice test. I don’t want to wait forever to pass the test. Do I have a chance to be selected for the online test? I’m in Illinois.

  56. I’ve trying to get ahold of the ged testing service aswell as the ROE for two days trying figure out what to do. I attempted to take the online version of the Social Studies GED test and I did the system check,internet check and everything. It was okay until I got into the site 10 minutes before my test time and tried to log on. It wouldn’t load and I kept trying to re-log in and it wouldn’t get past the log in screen. It wasn’t my internet because other sites were working it was only the ged site. And I kept trying to get in but it wouldn’t let me until exactly 15 minutes past the test time,causing me to miss my test and forfeit my payment . I tried to reschedule but now every place I try to schedule a test at is unavailable. This is my last test and I would like at least some answers. I was hoping to begin college but I’m stuck in a rut.

  67. Does Colorado, more specifically Colorado Springs, participate in the online testing for the official GED test? I only need my math test left and I am done.

  68. For the Math test, it said no scratch paper but I’m sorry how can we solve math problems without being able to write or “draw it out”? Please don’t tell me that computer scratch pad thing is what were supposed to use because thats not the same as using a good old pen and paper and solving math also with the time allowed we would never get it done in time!! Also If we have our own T-18 Calculator are we allowed to use that on test day because that is a GED approved calculator right? Im super concerned here and I just want to pass and get to college already!

  69. Will this option be available for students testing in Spanish? I hope so, this is a major need in my location. I feel so bad really since 2020 in USA not help to take in Spanish the test . When we need to have GED diploma to apply for all work

  73. Hello,
    Three of my students scored in the green on social studies Ready in early March. They scheduled the test in March and later that day (3/16?), they received message saying Testing Sites are closed. So if they retake the Ready, will they be included in the list of those eligible to online test soon?

    1. It depends on how many tests they’ve taken. Right now students who only have 1 more test left will be eligible for online testing first. It will come later for all other students, but the timeline has not been set yet.

  74. Good afternoon
    How do I schedule and pay for test? I already went through Approval process through OnVue it directed to the GED.com site and I could not locate where to sign up.
    Thank you

  75. How soon will online GED testing be available in Washington State for those who meet the other 3 criteria?

  76. Hello, I work for an adult education provider in the Washington DC area. First, is the online test available in Washington, DC? Second, is it true that the new online math portion doesn’t give you the ability to write problems down on a dry erase board or have scratch paper? Any guidance you have about test restrictions for the online test would be helpful since I work with many tutors who are coaching learners trying to pass the GED math test. Thank you.

We can not give you a specific date for when you will receive your invitation but we do encourage you to keep studying and preparing for the test.

  83. Why do we have to take pictures of our surroundings? Can’t the proctor see and hear everything we’re doing anyways? What are the protocols around those pictures and the test video? I’m concerned about security.

    Also, how quiet does it have to be? The walls in my building aren’t thick, so I don’t know how to get things pindrop silent, especially when people have fans and air conditioners running. Unfortunately, I can’t just go to another building to take the test.

    Thank you in advance for your time, can’t wait to get my GED!

    1. Hi Rita. You need to take pictures of your surroundings to ensure there is nothing around that could potentially help you cheat. This is the most secure way we can administer the test.

      1. Hi, thank you for your response! I’m afraid you didn’t see the rest of my questions, so I’ve copied and pasted it again underneath. Hopefully it doesn’t glitch this time!

        I’ll expand on this part first though. I understand preventing cheating, no paper nearby, that’s totally understandable. But do I have to literally clear the room of all furniture? And to expand on my previous statement, what are the protocols around those pictures and the test video *after*? (As in, what happens to those pictures after they are sent in? Are they destroyed or is a picture of the inside of my house saved on someone’s computer forever?

        So, now to fully restate my previous question,
        “Also, how quiet does it have to be? The walls in my building aren’t thick, so I don’t know how to get things pindrop silent, especially when people have fans and air conditioners running. Unfortunately, I can’t just go to another building to take the test.”

  103. Will we be able to maintain our scores from over the last year if we are unable to test due to covid before our normal score expiration date or will they still expire? I am trying to get a clear answer concerning this as my tests scores for two subjects are due to expire in July. Any hep regarding this question would be very much appreciated.

  104. IMPORTANT. I took the math and scored 144 unfortunetly your GED site shut down while i had 18 min left and 4 unanswered questions i called and a case was made i received an email with a code to retake the test for free, but i would like to know why i have to retake the test when i could have scored 145 if your site didn’t shut down on me ? It was your technical difficulty not mine . I would also like to know why you are only able to take the tests online once ? i failed my social studies and have to retake that and now my math since your site closed on me, but how am i suppose to retake when EVERY school offering the GED is closed in Florida ? So now im not able to proceed with my GED and on to school starting in Aug. personally i don’t understand how that makes sense the online GED is suppose to help people continue on with their diploma and onto their degree.

  105. I was under the impression if you have passed 3 out of 4 test subjects, you would get an email inviting you to test online. The centers near me all closed for months. I have not received an email with the option to test online. I would like to take the test ASAP, as I am missing out on a lot of job opportunities.

    1. Hi Damon. Have you taken and passed the GED Ready practice test in the remaining subject you have left? That’s a requirement before being able to test online.

  106. Hi, so I’ve passed 1 of 4 of the tests currently. It would have been 2 of 4, but my test was cancelled due to covid-19.
    Does this online testing only work if I only have 1 test left to do? If so that seems pretty inefficient. I have done the computer compatability test and everything works fine on my laptop and my room is applicable. My question is basically how do I schedule the online test? Or am I not applicable since I’ve only completed 1, it’s just not very clear on this website? I am in Portland Oregon and testing centers are closed for a long time, and I must become a lawyer!

    1. Hi Thomas. Unfortunately you’re not eligible to take the online test right now.

  110. Hi. Is Arizona participating in online testing? I have already passed 3 out of my 4 practice tests. Please let me know if this is possible as I am trying to start a collegiate program in September. Thank you!

  111. Hi,

    Just wanted to give some feedback. I passed my Science test online 2 days ago. I passed with a score of 163. So I’m pretty happy.

    I had only one incident during the test. At some point, the test window disappeared to be replaced by a small prompt window. The small prompt window was inviting me to close manually gamerecorder.exe (some app running in the background I wasn’t even aware of). It took me a minute, to don’t panic and launch my task manager to close the app, then close task manager, and the test came back.
    The whole thing was really stressful as I thought the test was over and it wasn’t easy to refocus on the test.
    I am pretty sure other folks will haven’t know what to do… Maybe a “practice the online test” practice (not just a system check) could be helpful.

    I’m currently working on the math test. when doing math, I am taking lots of notes. I don’t see myself solving equations on the little notepad provided or it would take me to triple the time… I hope testing centers will open soon…

  112. Hi I have passed three out of the four and and got a green in the practice test. I have a web cam and voice thing and ran the computer testing program. I live in Florida and I need to be able to complete the last part to keep my job.
