GED Classes Charlotte, North Carolina

Here we post a full listing of GED prep classes and testing locations in the Charlotte area. North Carolina uses two options for the state’s high school equivalency testing program, the GED and HiSET.

The GED and HiSET exams are available both online and at certified testing centers.

Pass the GED in 2 Months

Learn Just 1 Hour a Day.
It doesn’t matter when you left school.


The assessments offer students who quit high school before graduation one more shot at acquiring an equivalent diploma.

The HiSET® is available on paper and on a computer, while the GED is administered exclusively on a computer.

The GED® has four individual subtests in Literacy, Math, Social Studies, and Science that can be taken separately, one test at a time.

There are five HiSET subtests that are modular as well. Here, the Literacy portion is divided into writing and reading tests.

In the past, testing needed to be done at an official North Carolina test site. There was no online option.


We recommend the Online GED Classes from Onsego.  Simple, Fast & Easy. Onsego Provides Everything You Need to Pass Your GED.

Recently, that has all changed as new options for online HiSET and GED testing were introduced. Read more at the bottom of this post.

Online GED and HiSET testing

The High School Equivalency (HSE) exam (GED or HiSET) was never offered over the internet. To acquire a North Carolina HSE degree, you needed to appear at one of North Carolina’s state-approved HSE testing sites in person.

Now, this has all changed with the launch of online GED and HiSET tests. An online proctor will check if your testing is done in accordance with strict regulations. More information about GED online testing can be found here -> ‘Welcoming the online GED exam.’ For information about the newly launched online HiSET exam, check out -> ‘Introducing the online HiSET exam.’
