The GED is taken in lieu of a high school diploma and assesses five skills--reading, writing, math, science and social studies.
In 2014, the GED is changing to a computerized, 4 part version so those taking tests now must complete the GED by mid November of 2013. If it is not completed, the $150 fee will have to be repaid and all parts of the new test will have to be taken.
Students must attend the GED registration session before taking the GED exam. GED registration and tests are on a first-come/first-served basis at times listed on the schedule (no appointments).
Students must sign up 30 minutes prior to test time. Late students will not be tested.
Bring official ID (driver's license, passport, military or tribal ID) to the GED Registration session and for all GED tests. If you are under 19, you must bring a completed Request for Approval to Test GED form, signed by a high school principal or counselor.
If you began your GED at another testing center, the fees paid to them are not transferrable to Shoreline. You'll have to pay the $30 per test fee for all tests taken at Shoreline.
