Western Oklahoma State College is now a PearsonVue GED computer based testing site.
The GED has begun a new series of exams. There will be a total of 4 exams-Social Studies (90 minutes), Science (90 minutes), Mathematical Reasoning (115 minutes), and Reasoning through Language Arts-Writing and Reading (150 minutes).
Candidates will schedule themselves by logging into www.gedtestingservices.com and completing the online account. Candidates can then schedule according to the available days and times and select a test center.
You will need to allow a minimum of 2 appointments to complete all 4 of the exams. The available times for testing are not long enough to complete all 4 exams in one sitting. Once you have selected the test center, date, and time, payment is made online using a debit or credit card. The total cost for all 4 exams will be $138.
Any changes to the scheduled date and time must be completed online prior to the exam. Failure to do so will forfeit any payment made.
Candidates who are 16 and 17 must present a completed release form. The release form can be obtained from the Oklahoma State website or by following this link: GED Consent Form. This form must be completed by the candidate, parent or guardian, and the appropriate high school.
Candidates MUST present a current photo ID on test day.
