Frequently Asked Questions About The GED Test

WHAT IS A GED?

GED (General Educational Development) is the most widely respected High School equivalency credential. It consists of a series of four tests: Language Arts, Social Studies, Science and Math. You need a minimum of 150 on each test. Successful completion of the test series earns you a High School Certificate of Equivalency from the Oregon State Board of Education.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO TAKE THE GED TESTS?

Adults 18 years or older who have not graduated from an accredited high school may test. If you are 16 or 17, you must provide proof that you are legally released from compulsory school attendance, or are in a GED Options program. Contact your school of residence or your local Education Service District for more information. Parent/guardian signature is required. No one under 16 years of age is allowed to test for the GED.

HOW CAN I PREPARE FOR THE GED?

Preparation classes are available through the Klamath Adult Learning Center. Call 541-883-4719 for schedule and registration information. The class curriculum includes direct classroom instruction and skill building for all test skill areas. There is a $40 per-term resource fee for all classes. If you are currently a high school student or were recently enrolled and your graduating class has not graduated, you must meet first with a high school counselor and be referred to KALC. Those 16, 17, and 18 must meet with the director of KALC before entering the study program. Under 18, must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at this interview.

During the registration process you will sign up on the GED Testing Service website using your email address. This will allow you to take pretests through their service and schedule for your official GED testing when ready. Each test is $38 that is paid on-line through the GED Testing Service with a credit or debit card, ONLY. The official GED tests are taken at the Klamath Community College, Bldg 4, in the Testing Center.

HOW WILL I KNOW WHEN I AM READY TO OFFICIALLY TEST?

Your pre-testing will indicate if you are ready to take an official test. The teachers will help you know when you are ready to take your official testing. It is suggested that you take one test at a time, as you are ready in a particular subject. Official Government Picture ID is REQUIRED at the time of every official test. If you are under 18, you must have ID before you can sign up for any test. Accepted forms of ID are:

  • Valid Driver's License, Permit or State ID Card
