Online GED Classes

A simple and easy way of getting your GED diploma.

Learn fast, stay motivated, and pass your GED quickly.


The assessment gives people who left high school without a diploma the chance to obtain an equivalent degree.

This website provides GED lessons and practice tests at no cost to help you begin your GED prep journey. You can also learn if an online course suits you well. Our free support does not, however, address all subject topics of the computer-based GED test.

If online fits you well, you can continue learning with Onsego GED Prep, a comprehensive online program that is qualified by GED Testing Service as “fully aligned to the current GED exam.”

The GED exam includes four individual tests in the academic fields of

  • English Language
  • Math
  • Science
  • Social Studies

There’s no need to take the entire GED battery in one take. You can prepare for and take one subtest, or module, at a time.

When you have created your account at GED.com, you have the option to register and pay for one subtest at a time.

It used to be that the GED test was not available via the Internet. You needed to go in person to one of Virginia’s official GED testing sites.

But now, that has changed with the launch of the online proctored GED exam. To learn more, check the information at the bottom of this post.

Introducing the Online Proctored GED Exam

Until recently, you didn’t have the choice to take the GED exam in an online format. If you wanted to acquire a Virginia GED credential, you always were required to show up in person at one of Virginia’s state-recognized GED testing facilities.

This has now changed, however, as we saw the launch of a new online GED test-taking opportunity. Qualifying students can now take the four GED modules online from the comfort of their homes.

An online proctor oversees the entire test-taking process and checks if all is done in accordance with the rules. To learn more about this new development, visit Introducing the Online GED Test.
