  • Steps to earning your GED...
  • Attending an orientation is the first step. This orientation takes about two hours. We’ll go over how we’ll work with you to earn your GED.
  • The remaining slides of this presentation show the steps AFTER the orientation as you begin your work.
  • Locator test - Determines level of TABE assessment you need, or if you can skip TABE assessment all together and go straight to the Official Practice Tests (OPT) during one of our Prove Yourself Days.
  • TABE assessment/ Diagnostic – Pinpoints students’ strengths & weaknesses in areas of Reading, Math and Language.

  • If your TABE scores are above a 9.0 level, you can proceed with the Official Practice Tests. You will need to pass all 5 OPTs with a score of 450 or higher in each area before you are eligible to be registered to take the OFFICIAL GED TEST.
  • If your TABE scores are below a 9.0 level, you will need to work with your academic advisor and discuss which of the four study paths would best suit your needs.

- You can take the test at various locations in Boone & Kenton Counties

The cost is $55 – payable by money order. You can get money orders at the post office or Wal-Mart.

What if I don’t pass?

You only have to retake the sections in which you need to work.

It is $25.00 for each section you retake.

You may retake a test up to 3 times a year.

But you will pass because you must pass an official practice test before you are allowed to take the actual test and because we have a 100% pass rate for all Grant County students we send to take the GED test. You can do it!
