GED® Testing

The four sections of the GED® test can be taken through the Testing and Assessment Services at Edmonds College one at a time, in any order, and whenever students are ready. The Testing and Assessment Services 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 and Assessment Services 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.
