GED® Testing

The four sections of the GED® test can be taken through the Testing Center at Edmonds CC one at a time, in any order, and whenever students are ready. The Testing Center is located in Mountlake Terrace Hall 152, near the Triton Espresso stand.


As of Jan. 1, 2014, the GED® tests are computer-based. See FAQs.

For more information about testing times and procedures, please contact the Testing Center at 425.640.1546.

Is that a real GED®?

The General Educational Development Testing Service (GEDTS) warns that real GED® credentials cannot be earned through correspondence courses or on the Internet. GEDTS has received complaints from students who paid high fees to take fake GED® tests and who had not earned the credential accepted by hiring personnel, college admissions officers, and military enlistment personnel. Authentic (or real) GED® tests can be taken only in person at official GED® testing centers.
