GED Testing


When a student has achieved GED-readiness, he or she is given an appointment with a guidance counselor to apply to take the exam. During this appointment, the counselor reviews all of the requirements associated with taking the exam (e.g., verification of school withdrawal, SC identification, etc.) and makes plans to address any barriers that may arise (e.g., transportation and childcare on test day). The counselor maintains constant contact with the student until exam day. Staff are involved on exam day in transporting students to and from the test if necessary, addressing last minute crises, and providing encouragement.

Students are asked to contribute a $20 co-pay toward the $150 GED exam fee.
