Step 1: Creating your GED account with Pearson-Vue
GED testing is administered by a testing company called Pearson Vue. The costs for the GED exam are determined by Pearson Vue and the Ohio Department of Education. The testing center and ABLE have no control over the test fees. It is recommended that you create your GED account a week to 10 days in advance. By creating your GED account in advance, you may be able to receive a voucher from the Ohio Department of Education for a significant portion of the costs.
Step 2: Scheduling the GED Exam via computer
On the GED Testing Service Registration Form, students should indicate their interest in applying for accommodations by selecting YES on the question that asks about testing modifications based upon a documented disability or disorder. Once these registration forms are completed, students receive an email providing a link to the accommodation forms, guidelines, and directions for where to submit the request documentation.
GED Testing Service will review all accommodation requests within 30 days once received and correspond with students via email once a decision has been made.
Students will be able to discuss their request with a GED Accommodations Coordinator if they have any questions or if more information is needed for further review.
If a student is approved for accommodations, the Pearson VUE Accommodations Scheduling Team will contact the student and schedule the accommodated exam.
