What’s the cost of the GED test?

The cost of the GED test varies from state to state, but in most states, the GED® fee is around $30 per subject test. There are 4 subject tests, so the total price is around $120. Online GED testing is more expensive.

Some states subsidize the test fee, and others offer free testing. There are also states that offer the GED test at no cost to first-time testers.

4 states offer GED or HiSET testing for free: New York, West Virginia, Connecticut, and Maine.

  • New York and Connecticut use the GED test 
  • Maine and West Virginia use the HiSET test
  • In Connecticut, there is a small registration fee

2 states and the District of Columbia partially subsidize the GED exam, but more states have followed this example.

  • Arkansas: the GED exam fee is $16 ($4 per module/subtest)
  • Maryland: the GED exam costs $45 for all 4 subjects ($11.25 per module) 
  • District of Columbia: the entire GED exam costs $15 ($3.75 per module)
