GED Check-in Information
You will need to check with your state for specific requirements in terms of what to bring to the testing center. You will be given an erasable note-board and can use a handheld TI-30XS Multiview Scientific Calculator on the Mathematical Reasoning, Science, and Social Studies test subjects. If you want to use this handheld calculator, you must bring it on test day. Testing centers will not have calculators for you to use.
You may be required to store your calculator in your locker or other secure storage. Your testing center will advise you when you can retrieve your calculator for approved test sections.
As mentioned, cell phones are strictly forbidden in the testing room. TIP: Make sure you know where the testing center is and arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your scheduled GED® test appointment. You will need to check in when you get there. If you arrive more than 15 minutes after your scheduled appointment time, you may not be admitted and may lose your test fee.
Other personal items (such as handbags, backpacks, wallets, keys, etc.) are not allowed in the testing room. Storage is available, but limited.
