GED®

The Assessment Center is working remotely in response to COVID-19. For the best health of our community, on-campus GED® testing is suspended until further notice.

Online proctoring is available for this assessment. You may test remotely, including from home. Follow the instructions below under "How do I schedule my testing appointment?" to get started today!

The Assessment Center is excited to deliver the convenient, computer-based 2014 GED® assessment in both English and Spanish!

The GED® test is made up of four subjects: mathematical reasoning, reasoning through language arts, social studies and science. You don’t have to take all four tests at once, but once you pass all four, you’ll earn your high school equivalency diploma.

The CBC Assessment Center is an official GED® test center.
