It doesn’t matter when you left school.


The GED® test is designed for people who, for some reason, never finished high school.

This way, they have the opportunity to acquire a credential that is equivalent to a common HS diploma.

GED testing takes place at a level that compares to that of graduating high school students.

The GED exam consists of four subtests (modules) in Literacy, Math, Science, and Social Studies.

You may take one or more of the four GED modules at a time. Completion in one take is not needed.

We recommend the Online GED Program
from Onsego.

It’s Simple, Fast & Easy.


The Rhode Island GED exam costs $120 ($30 per individual test), but the state passed a bill that subsidizes the cost for low-income residents.

Introducing an online GED testing option

Until recently, taking the GED exam via the internet was never an option. If you were looking to earn your GED diploma, you had to appear, in person, at an official Rhode Island testing center.

Well, this has finally changed as we saw the launch of a new online proctored option to sit for the GED exam. If you want to learn more about this great new development, visit this page -> ‘Welcoming the online GED test.’
