Testing Process and Fees
All individuals in Arkansas are required to pass the GED Ready Test (official practice test) to be eligible to take the official GED Test. Students in the Adult Education Program that have demonstrated specific skill levels on the TABE Test may take the GED Ready Test at no cost. Individuals that are not enrolled in Adult Education must pay $6 per subject ($24 total) and take the GED Ready Test at an approved adult education or testing center.
Once GED Ready Test scores are verified, the individual may register for the official GED test at a cost of $4 per subject ($16 total). Adult Education Staff will provide assistance with the registration and testing process.
