The Maryland GED® Test

To get your GED in Maryland, you need to take the GED test. Studying for the test can be stress-free, and you can even study for the GED online.


Why You Should Study Online

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.  

Maryland State GED Test Eligibility Requirements

  • You must be a resident of Maryland.
  • 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 However, if you are 17 or 18 you can take the test if you has officially withdrawn from school and have provided the signed, embossed or sealed documentation form to the Maryland GED office.
  • Cost: $11.25 (per subject); $45 (all subjects)
  • Passing score: 145 (minimum) in each subject
