GED/HSED Testing Changes Coming Soon!
GED/HSED tests will be changing starting January 2014. Anyone currently interested in earning a GED is encouraged to complete all five GED tests no later than December 2013. If all five tests are not completed by that time, then candidates will be required to restart testing with the new GED tests. Previous scores will not carry over to the new tests in January 2014. The new GED tests will be computer-based and will continue to be administered at Wisconsin Technical Colleges.
To register for a GED/HSED orientation, call 1-800-472-4554; for questions ask for extension 3247.
