Introducing the online GED test

The GED exam was only available in person at official, state-recognized Texas HSE (high school equivalency) testing centers. Online HSE testing simply was never an option. Well, this has changed now as we saw the introduction of the online proctored GED test.

To learn more about the recently launched online proctored GED testing option, go to Introducing the online GED test.
