In this post, we list all GED prep facilities and testing centers in the Orangeburg region. South Carolina is using the computer-formatted GED exam for high school equivalency testing.
The GED exam can be taken at certified South Carolina testing sites only. There is no online testing option in the state.
The exam is for persons who don’t have a high school diploma and provides them with the opportunity to acquire an equivalent degree.
The GED® contains four modules (separate subtests) in Language, Math, Science, and Social Studies that may be completed one subtest at a time.
Until recently, to sit for the GED test, your personal appearance at an official test center was required since there was no online test option.
In most states, though, that has recently changed with the arrival of the online proctored GED testing option. Three states do NOT provide the online GED test, South Carolina, Vermont, and New York. To learn more, check below at the bottom of this post.

Online GED testing introduced
In earlier days, sitting for the GED test was never possible over the internet. Students looking to get hold of their high school equivalency diploma had to appear in person at a state-approved HSE (High School Equivalency) test center. This still applies to South Carolina where the online GED test is NOT available.
In most states, that has now changed with the arrival of an online GED testing option, but not (yet?) in South Carolina. More information is found here: ‘The online GED test’.
