This is an overview of GED prep classes and testing sites in the Sumter area. South Carolina uses the GED exam for high school equivalency testing.
South Carolina offers GED testing only at state-approved test facilities and online for eligible test-takers.
The program gives persons who did not complete high school the opportunity to get hold of an equivalent diploma.
The GED® is fully computerized and has four independent subtests that measure proficiency in these subjects:
- English Language Arts
- Social Studies
You don’t have to complete the four GED subtests or modules in one take. The subtests can be taken separately if you wish.
For information on the newly launched online GED testing option (available in most states), check the bottom of this page.
Go to “The GED Exam In South Carolina” for more detailed information on GED qualification requirements in South Carolina, testing costs, or the GED passing score.

Launching the Online Proctored GED Exam
In earlier days, you never had the option to deal with the GED exam via the Internet. If you were looking to get hold of your high school equivalency (HSE) credential, you had to report personally to a state-designated HSE testing center.
This has now changed, however, in most states, with the launch of a new online GED test-taking option. Only New York State does not provide the online proctored GED test. To read all about this development, visit ‘Launching the online GED exam.’
