The GED Testing Service would like to welcome the state of Tennessee back after an eight-year hiatus. The state officially offers the GED as of April 18, 2024. Since Tennessee last offered the test in 2016, we have made many innovations, such as GED Marketplace, an updated website, and a soon-to-be-launched GED Mobile App that will make it easier for learners to connect with the GED.

A Tennessee State Administrator expressed his excitement: “We are thrilled to be back in the GED family after an 8-year break. This partnership is set to soar once again.” With the GED program, Tennessee’s adult learners can now leverage its unique benefits, joining the ranks of new GED program graduates entering the workforce and succeeding in postsecondary programs at unprecedented rates.

Adult learners in Tennessee who are at least 18 years old can once again take the GED test in either English or Spanish. The GED offers several innovative features, including a comprehensive and mobile-friendly website, This platform provides tools to help students navigate the GED testing process and preparation while educators can access useful free resources in both English and Spanish. We also offer additional benefits like College Ready + Credit. If students score in the 165-174 range, they have the skills needed to start college-level courses and may be exempt from placement tests and remedial courses in college. A score of 175-200 could make them eligible to earn college credit, depending on their program. 

Learners in Tennessee will also be eligible to participate in GEDWorks, a program endorsed by some of the nation’s most renowned brands, including Amazon, Jiffy Lube, Taco Bell, and KFC. This program is a comprehensive support system, offering employees and, in some cases, their family members everything they need to study for and earn a GED credential, all at no cost. The GED Testing Service offers flexible testing options for learners, in addition to learners having access to convenient testing appointments each week, giving learners complete control over which tests they take and when.
