GED Classes Honolulu, Hawaii

Listed on this page are all GED prep locations and testing sites in and around Honolulu and Maui. The GED is for people who never completed high school; it gives them one more chance to earn an equivalent credential.

Hawaii also offered the five-test HiSET exam for the purpose of high school equivalency testing, but that option was discontinued.

GED Online

Pass Your GED Effortlessly
with Onsego

The GED exam can be taken online or at one of Hawaii’s certified testing centers.

The computer-formatted GED exam is a challenging assessment, and proper preparation is required. You may attend a class and learn under the supervision of a teacher at one of the facilities listed below or sign up for an accredited online course like the one developed by Onsego GED Prep. GED Testing Service recognizes Onsego’s GED course as “100% in line with the current GED test.”

The GED exam contains four independent, modular sub-exams that cover the academic subject areas of

  • Reasoning through Language Arts (writing and reading combined in 1 sub-exam)
  • Science, incl. Physica and Chemistry
  • Social Studies, incl. Economics, Geography, and History
  • Mathematical Reasoning

You have the option to prepare for, register for, and pay for the four separate GED sub-exams one at a time.

The GED is only available on a computer, and in today’s economy, that is only logical since practically all jobs (also those at the entry-level) will demand applicants to master at least basic computer and keyboarding skills.

In the past, online GED testing was not an option. Your personal appearance at an official Hawaii test center was required. Now, however, that all changed when online GED testing was introduced. Read more below.

Online GED Exam

In the past, taking the GED exam online was not possible. It simply wasn’t available. To earn their HSE (High School Equivalency) diplomas, test-takers needed to show up at an official Hawaii testing site.

Now, all of that has changed as the GED Testing Service has introduced an online version of the GED test with an online proctor. More information is found here: The online GED test.
