If you pass all subtests, you will earn a high school equivalency diploma from the Florida Department of Education.

Computer-based GED exam

Due to statewide changes, the paper-based GED test is no longer offered. Students who did not finish the paper-based test in 2013 or before will need to retake the entire GED examination online. You can use the online resources to become familiar with the online exam format and prepare for the GED exam online.

Seminole State can help you prepare for the test with year-round GED test-prep classes. For a complete schedule of classes, please visit the Adult Education website.

Accommodations are available for students with documented disabilities. You must submit your request for accommodations at the time of your online registration with the GED Testing Services.
