The GED® Test in Connecticut

Connecticut offers the GED test to get your GED diploma, which will help you to get a job, apply to colleges, or join the military. You cannot take the test online, but you can study for it anytime, anywhere and on any device!


Use a Connecticut Online Study Program

There are three reasons why online study speeds up preparation for the tests. First is flexibility. Online studying can fit into your schedule and lifestyle. Second is control. You can study at your own pace instead of what the classroom dictates. And third, you learn faster and retain more because Essential Education Academies customize the study to exactly what you need to know.  

Your $15 enrollment includes six courses to help you pass your high school equivalency test, get a job, improve your computer skills, and manage your finances. Make your dreams come true. 

The GED Test Eligibility in Connecticut

  • You must be a resident of Connecticut.
  • You cannot be enrolled in an accredited high school or be a high school graduate.
  • You must be 19 years of age. However, if you are 17 or 18 you must submit documentation that you have been officially withdrawn from a Connecticut school for at least six months. 17-year-olds must submit an official withdrawal form with a parent or guardian signature which shall include an attestation from a guidance counselor or school administrator. 18-year-olds may submit a letter from their last high school that states the class they entered in ninth grade with (or would have entered if never enrolled in high school) has already graduated.
  • Cost: Connecticut offers Free GED testing per subject, but there is a registration fee of $13
  • Passing score: 145 (minimum) in each subject
  • Accommodations: You must apply for disability accommodations through the GED test’s accommodations page.

After you pass the test, the State of Connecticut will award you a GED certificate that will show you have achieved the same level of knowledge as a high school graduate.
