How to Get a GED® in Oregon

Oregon residents and non-residents take note: this test is available to both categories. You can earn your GED® credential in Oregon if you’re not a high school graduate and not currently enrolled in high school.

You must be 18 years of age to take the test independently. If you’re under 18, you need to be:

  • At least 16 years old.
  • Enrolled in an Oregon Option Program for in-school youth.
  • Exempted by your local school district.
  • Legally emancipated or pursuing the GED® with a parent or guardian’s permission.

Sixteen-year-olds may need a court order, and no one under 16 may take the test.

The GED® in Oregon is available in a computer-based format. You can access it online or at an official GED® test center.

Preparatory classes, while not required, are recommended. These classes will help you prepare for the test and give you more confidence. If you want to take the test online without going to a center, you’ll need to take our GED® Ready test and score in the “green zone” (likely to pass) to qualify for the exam.

The first step is signing up for a free account. Then follow these step-by-step instructions. Do you already have an account? Log in and get started.

When you pass the test, you’ll get a GED® certificate from the state of Oregon. The certificate is recognized nationally and means you’ve achieved the same level of knowledge as all other high school graduates in Oregon.
