In the United States, millions of adults without high school diplomas lack the skills and knowledge to succeed in the 21st century marketplace. This impacts every community in America.
In 2014, Pennsylvania’s General Education Development (GED) test was changed and updated to reflect what graduating high school seniors need to know to be successful in the workplace. The test ensures that adults have the skills and knowledge necessary to take the next critical steps in their lives.
Registration is simple. Simply sign up for MyGED at http://www.ged.com and you will get information about local policies, how to request modified testing conditions (accommodations), or you'll be able to schedule right then. Remember to select the Allegheny Intermediate Unit as a testing center.
The General Education Development (GED) test has been updated to make sure it measures what graduating high school seniors know and what colleges and employers will expect of you.

In Pennsylvania the fee per subject is $30.00. You can pay as you go with the GED test. This means you can pay for each subject individually or when you are ready to test.
What do I need to bring the day of the test?
A current (not expired) photo identification card that also includes your signature and birthday, like a state ID or Driver’s License. If your ID is not from the state of Pennsylvania, you must provide proof of residency in Pennsylvania. Proof of residency means bringing in a utility bill, lease or mortgage that includes your name and address. Please note: If you do not provide proper identification and/or proof of residency, you will NOT be admitted for testing.
The AIU offers GED preparation classes as part of its Adult Basic Literacy Education program.
