GED Final Test

Most employers and colleges, including TCC, accept GED certificates as equivalent to a high school diploma. Opportunity is within reach!

GED testing at Tacoma Community College is available through the Certification & Testing Center in Bldg. 6. Call 1.877.392.6433 or click here to schedule your test. The option of taking all 4 assessments in one day is available at this center, however taking all four GED assessments in one day is eight (8) straight hours of testing with only 10 minute breaks between each assessment. Breaking the four assessments up on different days is recommended for those who would be uncomfortable sitting for eight straight hours.

All reservations must be made 24 hours in advance for GED testing. Click HERE
