We are often asked by students how they can sign up with GED.com. Well, the process of setting up a GED.com account is relatively easy and pretty straightforward.
You can use the GED.com website to get all set for the four independent GED® sub-exams or use our free online GED classes to learn if an online prep course might be right for you. We do, however, not cover the full GED curriculum.
If our online learning approach is appealing to you, we suggest you set up an account with Onsego GED Prep Online, a full-scale, accredited, affordable program that will get you ready for the four GED subtests efficiently.
Now, let’s take a look here at how to set up your GED.com account:
First, go to the official website of GED Testing Service, GED.com, and click the “Sign Up” button.
Then, you’ll be prompted to enter a current email address and a password. You must use your email address and password each time you want to access your GED.com account.
Once you’ve decided on your password, you can go forward by clicking the button that says “Sign Up.”
Enter Your Personal Data
When you have clicked the “Sign Up” button, you will see a screen saying “Ready To Test.” Here, you have to enter your name exactly as it shows on your government-issued identification.
You’ll then be asked to enter your primary phone number, and you can also enter a secondary number. After you’ve entered your phone number, click on the arrow next to “Type,” and indicate if or not the number you entered is a mobile number.
If you want to receive emails about GED news, which states offer free GED testing, and special offers, you can confirm that by ticking the box. Then, click “Continue” to go on to the next page. If you want to edit any information you entered previously, click the “Back” button. If not, continue.
If you already have a GED.com account but forgot your GED password, learn all about resetting your password in the linked post.
What if you Have a Job?
Next, you’ll be taken to a screen that lists companies. If you are employed by any of those companies, click the company’s name followed by the button “Continue.”
If you’re not working for any of the listed companies, click “I work for a different company” or “I am currently not employed.” These last two options can be found on the dropdown list when you click “Select One.” Then, click “Continue.”
Keep in mind that if you have a GED diploma, you may expect to earn at least $9700 more a year than if you don’t. Quite a difference, right?
Next, you’ll see a screen with the state you entered when submitting your address. If you want to take the GED exam in this state, leave it as it is. in case you want to take the exam in another state than yours, click on your preferred state.
Then, you’ll be asked to answer the question, “Are you enrolled in high school currently?” and click “Continue.” If you want to read more about how to register for the actual GED test, go to the linked page and learn all about it.
On the GED exam, candidates with documented disabilities have the option to take the exam with accommodations. To apply for accommodation, click the “Yes” button; if not, click on the “No” button and click the button “Continue.”
Students who require accommodations should apply in a timely manner. GED Testing Service needs to verify the request and will need several weeks to do so. You can also contact your school district for help.
If you answer “No” to the question on accommodations, you will be taken to the GED Dashboard, the home screen of the GED.com website. At that point, you have the opportunity to start scheduling your tests if you click the button “Schedule Test.”
