For information on GED testing, call (706) 771-4153.

Testing sessions are scheduled on a first come, first serve basis and are limited to 35 individuals.

Minimal passing scores are based on a total of 2250 points. No individual test score may fall below 410 and you must have an average standard score of 450 in order to pass. Individuals who score below 410 on any test must retake that test even if the total score for all five tests is 2250 or higher. If these requirements are not met, a waiting period for retesting may apply based on the average score attained by the examinee. Individuals who do not earn at least 2250 points and who desire to retake the test may do so once the waiting period expires. However, if the individual enrolls in GED preparation classes, he/she may retest when the instructor certifies that they are ready to test again.
