GED Test Information

Our testing site is closed until further notice due to Covid-19 restrictions, however GED has an online test proctoring service. Please contact GED (877-392-6433) to reschedule your exam. We apologize for the inconvenience.

The Simi Institute for Careers and Education is an official testing facility for GED®Testing Service. Upon passing the exam, test candidates will be issued a high school equivalency credential from the State of California. 

 

COVID-19 SAFETY GUIDELINES:

You will not be admitted to the Test Center and should reschedule your exam if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms: cough, shortness of breath, fever, chills, sore throat, and / or loss of smell.

You must bring and wear your own face mask while at a Pearson VUE-owned test center and throughout your exam. Any surgical or cloth face mask, including a homemade face mask, is acceptable as long as your nose and mouth are fully covered. Candidates without a face mask will be denied testing services. We are unable to provide face masks to candidates.
