Taking the Wisconsin GED® Test

Wisconsin measures its residents’ high school equivalency (HSE) level of skills and knowledge by offering the GED test. Studying in a GED class can make it easier to obtain your GED certification, but why go to a class when you can study online and in the comfort of your home!


Why 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.  

Wisconsin State GED Test Eligibility

  • You cannot be enrolled in an accredited high school or be a high school graduate.
