GED Testing

The paper/pencil GED test has ended.  You must now take the tests on the computer.  Available test dates at Inver Hills begin in January 2014.

What do I need to know about taking the GED?

Before the GED test is taken:

  • An examinee must be a resident of the State of Minnesota for a minimum of 90 days.
  • An examinee must be a minimum of 19 years of age or have an approved age waiver from the  Minnesota Department of Education (link to age waiver)
  • An examinee must register for the GED test online at: Fees must be paid at the time of registration.
  • You MUST reschedule online through the "My Account" function at more than 24 hours in advance.  The testing center cannot reschedule your test for you.  Failure to reschedule will result in forfeiture of the fees paid.

For the GED test:

  • All examinees will be seated in a designated room for the GED exam.
  • We will provide scratch paper, and pens/pencils.
  • No personal items/materials are allowed in the testing room, except for the test and answer sheet.  A limited number of small lockers are available to store personal items, please plan accordingly.  No food or drink is allowed in the testing room.
  • The number of tests taken in one day is determined by you, when you register online and pay for testing.
  • An examinee must complete a test before leaving the testing room. No breaks will be allowed during an individual test.
  • Talking is not allowed during the exam, except with the test proctor.  Any examinee discovered talking or cheating during a test will surrender their test and be permanently dismissed from the Inver Hills Testing Center and reported to the MN Dept of Education – GED Office.

Are the tests timed?

All GED tests are timed. You will be allotted a specific amount of time to take each test. However, if you finish a test early, you can come out of the testing room and request to begin the next test. Specific test sections and times can be found at:
