    GED Testing

    Testing center hours

    Lackawanna College’s GED Testing Center is open every Friday and Saturday, from Feb. 1 through June 13, 2014.  Saturday-only testing is available June 14 through Aug. 30, 2014.  Friday and Saturday testing hours will resume starting Sept. 5, 2014.  The Center will not be open on holidays.  In case of a weather or another related emergency, please call (570) 961-7899 to confirm that College is open.


    The new GED format is computer-based.  A student can complete their GED testing in a one-day, six-hour period. A complete GED Test consists of 4 sections:  Math (95 min), Language Arts (155 min), Science (95 min) and Social Studies (95 min). A student may register for multiple sections or an entire test on any testing date. If you schedule more than one subject in the same day, you will not receive a lunch break automatically.  To schedule a lunch break, schedule each subject separately so you have time between tests.


    • All students must schedule and pay for testing through www.ged.com
    • On the day of the test, please arrive at the testing center (501 Vine Street, Scranton, Room 301) at least 15 minutes early.
    • Have a valid Pennsylvania Photo Identification with you.  If you do not possess a valid PA ID, you must have a valid Passport, VISA, or other Photo ID along with 2 proofs of PA residency (example: utility bill, rent receipt).
    • Any student not confirmed on the Testing Site roster will not be able to be able to test.


    The cost of an entire four-section test is $120.  Individual sections are $30 each.  All testing fees must be pre-paid upon registration at www.ged.com.  Lackawanna College does not collect testing fees.
