GED Testing Information



The current GED Testing Series HAS BEEN REPLACED as of January 2, 2014. If you did not complete and pass ALL sections of the previous GED (2002-2013 series) by December 2013, your previous scores are now invalid and you will be required to take ALL SECTIONS of the new GED test in 2014. The cost of the GED exam is now $135.


The Counseling and Testing Center at NCTC's Gainesville Campus is a testing site for the General Educational Development (GED) test for high school equivalency.  The GED is offered to persons who:

  • 1) are not enrolled in high school, and

  • 2) have not graduated from high school, and

  • 3) are at least 18 years old

    *17-year-olds who are a resident of the state and who are enrolled in an approved in-school program to prepare for the high school equivalency exam may test, or 16-year-olds who are recommended by a public agency that has supervision or custody of the person under court order, enrolled in a Job Corps training program, or ordered by a justice of municipal court setting a truancy case may also qualify to test*


All GED pre-registration activities are now online at Visit this official GED site to create your online portal with access to study tools, GED testing sites and available test dates throughout the state, as well as your scores after testing. NCTC does not have walk-in registration for GED testing-all processes are now online.
