GED® Testing Information
This is the high school equivalency exam used by post-secondary educational institutions and employers in lieu of a high school diploma.
In the State of Utah, the GED® is now a computer based test. The price to take the GED® is $120.00.
You can register for the GED® by visiting www.GEDcomputer.com and click on Register Today. You can also register by calling the PearsonVue call center at 1-877-EXAM-GED (392-6433).
All 16 – 18 non-graduate cadidates must take the “K-12 Education Withdrawal and GED Testing Registration Application Form” to a Utah Adult Education Program whereby the adult education program will validate the form for completeness and “activate” the candidate’s GED testing registration to allow them to proceed to a GED testing center to take the GED Test through the computer-based testing process.
