Online GED Classes

A simple and easy way of getting your GED diploma.

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


GED testing gives adults who never graduated high school the chance to earn an equivalent credential.

The GED® exam has four subtests that can be taken separately; there is no requirement to take the entire GED battery in one session.

These subtests (independent, modular tests) measure knowledge in these academic fields:

  • Language Arts
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Social Studies

It used to be that there was no online GED testing option. You were required to show up at a state-approved testing site and take the four subtests in person.

That has changed now, however, with the arrival of an online GED testing option. For more information, check the bottom of this post.

Introducing the Online GED Test

In earlier days, there was never the option to sit for the four GED modules over the Internet. If you were looking to earn your GED diploma in Washington State, you were always required to show up personally at an official, state-recognized GED testing center.

This has changed now, though, with the launch of an online opportunity to take the GED exam. If you qualify for the online GED testing option and decide to do that, you’ll see an online proctor who monitors your testing activities and checks if you do it all in line with the rules. For more detailed information, go to ‘Introducing the online GED test.’
