Can you get your GED online?

You must go to an official testing center to take your GED®, HiSET or TASC test. If any website tells you they can give you a GED® diploma, it is not true. Do not give them money or personal information.

Usually, you cannot get your GED online. You have to take the GED® test at a testing center. The GED® testing website can help you find a GED® test center near you.

However, many GED® testing centers have cancelled tests because of COVID-19. In June 2020, the GED® Testing Service announced it would use online testing for some students. If you are eligible for online testing, you will receive an email from the GED® Testing Service.See the GED® website for more details. Only the official GED® Testing Service can test you. If another website says they can give you a GED diploma, it is not true! HiSET and TASC tests are not available online either.
