[January 15, 2013]  The Logan-Mason-Menard Regional Office of Education is announcing its GED test schedule for 2013.

GED test schedule for 2013:
(may be subject to change)

  • Feb. 5

  • March 12

  • April 9

  • May 14

  • June 11

  • July 9

  • Aug. 13

  • Sept. 10

  • Oct. 8

  • Nov. 12

  • Dec. 10

(All scheduled dates are Tuesdays.)

Important notice:

2013 is the last year the current paper-and-pencil GED test series will be administered. Beginning in 2014, all testing will be computer-based and will cost $120 for the entire test battery, plus $10 for a GED certificate upon successful completion. It is highly recommended that those needing to re-take any tests to earn the GED certificate do so by Dec. 10, 2013. Otherwise, prior scores will be deleted and the entire test battery will need to be taken again in 2014 or beyond.

To register for the GED test, applicants must apply in person at either the Regional Office of Education in Lincoln, 122 N. McLean St., or at the Havana office, in the Mason County Courthouse, 125 N. Plum St.

Proof of passing the high school level Constitution test must be presented prior to registering for the GED.

The test fee is $50, and all applicants must bring a photo ID (driver's license or government-issued ID) with a current address when registering. Registration is typically to be completed by the Friday prior to the test date.

All GED tests for residents of Logan, Mason, and Menard Counties will be administered in the office in Lincoln, located at the Dr. John Logan Building. (Enter at the front of the building.)

The five-part GED test is administered in a single day. Applicants must arrive at the Lincoln office by 7:45 a.m. and may bring bottled, capped water or soft drinks and a snack, if desired. A current photo ID is required at check-in.

Remember, there is no such thing as earning a legitimate GED credential online. Use care when accessing websites that make such promises and charge very high fees. Taking the GED test involves registering and testing in person at a GED-approved testing site.

Further information may be obtained by visiting or calling either regional office:

  • Lincoln, 217-732-8388

  • Havana, 309-543-2192
