You must bring your Official valid picture I.D., as described under Checklist for Registering.
DIRECTIONS & PARKING
You will special information about parking when you register. Please refer to you Registration Confirmation Sheet. Allow ample time for parking! After 6 pm and on weekends, parking is free almost everywhere on campus. Be sure to read the parking signs carefully.
See Directions & Maps page for more information.
Always read the test directions before beginning. The time limit for each test is printed in the directions on the back of each book.
You are not allowed to write or mark on any test booklets. If you do so, you will be fined $30 and must pay this before you can take any further tests. Remember to do your figuring on the scratch paper provided for each exam.
Once the test timing begins, you may not leave in the middle of an exam for any reason. If you leave in the middle of a test, your answer sheet will be submitted as is. (So remember to use the restroom before you start testing.)
The GED Bulletin (which you are given at the time of registration) has sample questions, test-taking tips, and calculator guidelines in it. It will also answer your questions about the scoring process. You can also find helpful information on our GED Preparation page.
Answer sheets are usually scanned the next business day and your scores will appear online in GED Wizard shortly thereafter (usually within 24 hours), with the exception of the Writing Test which takes about a week to process.
