General Education Development (GED) tests are for those wishing to earn a GED certificate, which is equivalent to a high school diploma and meets most employment criteria and the educational eligibility requirement to receive federal financial aid for college. Cost is $120. All registrations and payments are done through the GED Testing Service or by calling 1-877-392-6433.
