Online GED Classes

A simple and easy way of getting your GED diploma.

Learn fast, stay motivated, and pass your GED quickly.


The exam provides persons who didn’t graduate from high school the chance to secure an equivalent degree.

Some GED students learn better under the guidance of an instructor at a traditional facility, but other students do well when using a good online GED course. Gedeno provides video lessons and practice tests for free to help you decide if online learning is a good option for you.

If it is, we recommend you continue your GED prep journey with Onsego GED Prep, a full-scope, online, engaging GED prep course that received the qualification “Entirely GED Test-Aligned” from GED Testing Service.

The GED test must be taken entirely on a computer and comes with four subtests in

  • Math Mathematical Reasoning)
  • Social Studies
  • Science
  • Literacy (Reasoning through Language Arts)

You have the option to take one (or more) of the four GED subtests at a time. Completion in one take is not required.

For information about the recently launched online proctored GED testing option (offered in most states), check the bottom of this post.

Welcoming the Online GED Test

In earlier days, GED testing was never an option online. Students looking to earn their high school equivalency credentials had to come personally to a state-designated testing center.

However, the recent introduction of a new online proctored GED testing option has ended that in most states. The online proctored GED test is not (yet?) offered in New York. For more information, check out this article: ‘The online proctored GED exam.’
