GED test schedule for 2013:
(may be subject to change)
(All scheduled dates are Tuesdays.)
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.
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.
