Admission to Seminole State's Adult Basic Education (ABE) or General Education Development (GED) Program is offered year-round to students who are 18 years of age or older. To enroll in the ABE/GED Program, students must:

GED Testing

Seminole State provides computer-based testing for the 2014 GED exam on the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus in room A-107 or D-108.

The GED exam consists of four subtests (math, science, social studies and reasoning through language arts). All who pass each sub-test with a score of 150 or higher will earn a State of Florida high school diploma.

To register for the GED exam, please visit the GED Testing Service page.  Once registered, you must pay the fee with a voucher, debit card or credit card. Select the testing center at which you would like to take the exam. On the day of the test, bring your receipt, Social Security card and valid Florida ID to your testing site. Remember to show up at least 15 minutes prior to your test time.

If you do not pass the GED:

  • Attend a study center to enhance your skills.
  • Fill out a new application to retake the test.
  • Pay the GED retest fees.

If your score on any subtests is below 150 after two tries, or if you did not pass three or more subtests:

  • You must attend a study center for at least three months (see the ABE/GED program above); or
  • You must wait at least six months before re-testing.

Scholarship Opportunities

If you have attended GED prep classes at Seminole State and scored 170 or higher on each of the four subtests of the 2014 GED exam, you may apply for a scholarship worth up to $1,000 to continue your education at Seminole State. Ask your instructor for more information.
