Tyler Junior College is a testing center for the GED.
Please note: The 2002 GED Testing Series will be replaced beginning January 2, 2014. Incomplete or insufficient GED scores from the 2002 series will no longer be valid after December 31, 2013. We encourage you to complete your preparation and testing as soon as possible.
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Students must now pre-register to take the GED test. Space is limited to 30 registered testing candidates per testing session. You can pre-register by visiting the TJC Testing Center in Rogers Student Center located on the TJC main campus on the corner of Lake and Baxter. At the time of pre-registration, candidates will receive instructions on how to create a GED student account (a student account must be created prior to testing) and information needed on test day. For more information, please call the Testing Center at 903-510-2050 or 903-510-2389. Walk-ins or stand-by candidates on the day of the test who have not pre-registered will NOT be tested.
Pre-Registration: Candidates must have a valid government issued driver’s license, ID card or passport (no temporary) and Social Security card must be presented when you pre-register and on the day of testing. If official GED testing has been started at another location, an official copy of the prior test scores must be presented at the time of registration. The registration deadline for testing is noon the day prior to the scheduled test.
Fees: For all 5 parts of the GED test, the testing fee is $80.00. Payment required at time of pre-registration. There is a $20 fee for re-testing, and a $20 fee for no show cost, per subject. Other fees may apply for "No-Show" testers.
Transcripts: Transcripts of GED records may be secured from Texas Education Agency by visiting their GED website.
