I am located at an overseas US Military Base. What testing location should I select?

If you are a member of the U.S. Military community and based in the United States (CONUS), please create an account on and select the state in which your base is located to start testing. If your state is not available upon account creation, please select the nearest testing location that allows non-residents to test.

U.S. Military community members stationed overseas should select “Other Countries” as the location they would like to test.

To see if the state you wish to test in allows non-residents to test, visit their state policy page.

If you are with the U.S. Military community and located on a base outside of the U.S., select “Other Countries” as your testing location.

Please contact 1-877-EXAM-GED (877-392-6433) to schedule your tests. Inform the call center agent you are with the Military community and the name of the base you are stationed at.
