This page lists all GED preparatory classes and testing sites in the Montpelier region. Vermont is using the computer-formatted GED (General Education Development) exam for high school equivalency testing.
There are four GED subtests that can be taken only at state-approved Vermont GED testing centers. The state does not offer online GED testing.
The GED® test offers people who quit high school without graduating one more option to secure an equivalent degree.
Testing occurs at a level comparable to what HS seniors must command upon graduation.
The four subtests are separate modules that cover Reasoning through Language Arts, Mathematical Reasoning, Social Studies, and Science.
You have the option to take one (or more) of the GED subtests at a time. No need to take it all at once.
In most states, it used to be that online GED testing was not possible. Your personal appearance at an official GED testing site was required.
In most states, though, this has now changed with the arrival of an online GED testing format. To learn more, check the information at the bottom of this page (online GED testing is not available in Vermont, New York, and South Carolina).

Welcoming an online GED testing format
Sitting for the GED exam via the internet was, until recently, no option. To earn your GED diploma, you were required to come, in person, to an official, state-recognized GED testing center. And that’s still the case in Vermont.
But there are some interesting developments going on. Recently, we saw the introduction of an online proctored option to take the four GED subtests. A proctor will check online if your test-taking happens in accordance with the rules and regulations. To learn more about this interesting development, check out this article -> Introducing the online GED test.

Holding the GED diploma will certainly result in better job options and promotions on the job, and it allows for a college education. The GED is accepted as the equivalency of a high school credential by virtually all US businesses, government organizations, employers, and colleges.
This website informs you about all possible aspects of the GED exam and you can go to the GED’s organization website GED.com to learn every detail about the GED program and how to register and pay for your testing sessions.
How old do I need to be?
In Vermont, you need to be at least 16 years old. Testers 16 & 17 years old, however, will need to submit a consent form signed by a parent/guardian.
Applicants must be Vermont residents but they don’t have to attend a prep course first or take the GED Ready® test. It is strongly recommended, though, to become well-prepared through the state’s Adult Education & Literacy system. Classes are offered at no cost at all.
Another great option, particularly for students that live in remote regions, is to follow a good online GED prep course. There are quite a few options over the internet at no charge as well.
