Equivalency and GED Testing

The Testing Centre is closed due to COVID. Testing Services for these exams are temporarily suspended. Thank you for your understanding.

The GED test battery consists of multiple-choice tests in writing, social studies, science, mathematics, and reading.

If you pass all the tests, you will receive a statement of your GED exam marks and your high school equivalency diploma. Many employers accept the GED in place of a regular high school diploma and some post-secondary institutions accept the GED as a high school diploma equivalent. Call your post-secondary institute of choice to determine whether they will accept the GED.

Although GED is an alternative method of obtaining a high school equivalency diploma, it is not always accepted in lieu of Alberta Education credit courses for admission to higher education at post-secondary institutions, including post-secondary programs offered at NorQuest College. If you intend to apply to a post-secondary program, check with the institution to see whether GED is acceptable in lieu of academic credit course work.

To register for the GED Exam

  1. Complete the GED Exam Application Form.
  2. Read the GED Bulletin (245K pdf).
  3. Phone 780.644.6096 to provide payment information.

Note: Payment or confirmation of sponsorship is required the same day you send your registration form. Your seat is not reserved until confirmation of your payment is received. GED test fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.
