Registering for the GED Test
As of 1 October 2016 the DANTES jurisdiction of the GED Test has been discontinued, but students are still able to test. The UMGC Asia test centers are contracted through the U.S. Government but don't show under “other countries” when trying to identify a test center from the GED Testing Service homepage. The only way to register for the exam is by calling and providing the customer service representative with the test center site code (see below) for where you want your test administered at. Please remember that all SOFA regulations apply to those requesting testing services at our facilities. Exceptions will not be made. If you are unsure of your eligibility please contact the applicable test center below.
Students who will be testing on international military bases would need to set up their account with their desired address, but will choose their testing jurisdiction as "Other Countries." They would be welcome to set up their own account online at GED.com or by calling Customer Service.
In order to schedule an exam, the student will need to call Customer Service since their online scheduling system would prevent them from choosing the military base testing centers. They should specify that they are trying to schedule at an international military base to ensure they are scheduled appropriately. Each of the four exam subjects would currently be $75.00. Please note, exam fees are subject to change, so you can always see the current exam fee at their Policy Page
