Tennessee GED Testing Eligibility

To take the GED test in Tennessee you must be at least 17 years old. You don't need to live in Tennessee to take the GED test there. However, you must not be enrolled in a public or private high school, and you must not already have a high school diploma or high school equivalency diploma. If you are 17 years old, you can take the Tennessee GED test only if you meet special eligibility requirements. If you are 17, you must have an age waiver signed by the superintendent of your school system, not be enrolled in high school, and be enrolled in a state GED Option Program.

Don’t take the Tennessee GED test unless you’re prepared. You can pass, but if you’re like most people, you’ll need some brush-up and to get familiar with the test. Find out about GED online classes.

Tennessee GED: College Eligibility

More than 60 percent of GED test-takers plan to go on to college. The GED exam can help you get there. Ninety-eight percent of colleges and universities in the U.S. accept the GED credential, though some colleges require additional tests, such as the SAT or the ACE. Check with the admissions offices of the colleges you’re interested in for their requirements. Beware of online high school degrees that colleges won’t accept.

Tennessee GED Retesting

If you took the TN GED test and did not pass, you don't have to take the whole test again, just the parts you did not pass. You may take the test up to three times during a year, and you must wait 30 days to retake the test unless your testing center or adult education program waives the waiting period. Before you test again, it's a good idea to go back and study, to make sure that you're prepared. The fee to retest in Tennessee is $10 to $15 per subject.
