Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, no GED testing is currently being held at Edmonds College. Please go to GED.com for more information about how you can test.

Is that a real GED®?
The General Educational Development Testing Service (GEDTS) warns that real GED® credentials cannot be earned through correspondence courses or on the Internet. GEDTS has received complaints from students who paid high fees to take fake GED® tests and who had not earned the credential accepted by hiring personnel, college admissions officers, and military enlistment personnel. Authentic (or real) GED® tests can be taken only through the official GED website or in person at official GED® testing centers.
How to Enroll
1. Call or email to get onto the Enrollment List
Call 425.640.1593, email email@example.com, or chat with us on our website to get on the GED enrollment list. Please leave your
name, phone number, and email. Students on the enrollment list will be contacted shortly
via phone or email to complete important college paperwork. We are also happy to offer
a GED virtual lobby, 10 a.m.-2 p.m., Mon.-Thurs. and Tuesday evenings from 4-8 p.m. Drop-in to get on
the enrollment list. This is a quick and easy way to get started.
Students enrolled in classes for completing their GED do not need to obtain a high
school transcript. If you think you may be interested in a high school diploma and
want someone to evaluate the credits you have earned, please work on obtaining a transcript
while waiting for staff to contact you. When you are contacted by Pre-College staff
we will provide further instructions as to where your transcript can be sent for evaluation.
3. One-on-One Advising and Registration
During your introductory phone call or email you will schedule a one-on-one advising
and registration appointment. At this time your advisor will answer any questions
you may have. You will also select courses that work with your life/work schedules
and skill level. After getting registered for your classes, you will pay your class
fee of $25. Fee waivers are available if eligible. Students who register early get
the best selection of classes.
4. Continuing Support
Each quarter, GED students meet with their advisor to select classes for the next quarter, until they have met their goal of completing the four GED tests. Your advisor is also available to help students throughout the quarter with the process of applying for financial aid, meeting with a college or program advisor, and supporting students in taking the next steps on a path to a college degree or a new career.
