Once students have completed prep work for an exam, they are able to schedule a testing appointment. While students can take GED exams at many different locations, the GED Lab at West Hills College Lemoore works with several proctoring sites in the local area.
Our partner test locations are:
- Crossroads Charter Academy, Hanford
- Hanford Adult School
- Visalia Adult School
There are four areas of study for the GED:
- Reasoning through Language Arts
- Mathematical Reasoning
- Social Studies
We recommend that each test be taken individually rather than two or more at once.
The registration process for the GED test can be completed using myGED, and test dates are offered weekly at proctoring sites.
- Each exam is $35 (all four exams $140). MyGED offers a discount for students who do not pass the exam the first time.
- The passing GED score is 145 in each of the four content modules (a score of 170 or above receives honors).
The GED Lab at West Hills College Lemoore offers computer-assisted learning that prepares students for each exam. We also offer one-on-one instruction and workshops focused on GED concepts.
