Accommodations for People with Disabilities

If you have a documented disability that could keep you from taking the GED Tests in the way in which they are usually given, you might be entitled to receive testing accommodations.

Accommodations are available for people with (but not limited to) the following:

  • Physical disabilities (such as blindness, low vision, deafness, impaired hearing, or mobility impairments)
  • Learning disabilities (such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, receptive aphasia, or written language disorder)
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder
  • Psychological disabilities (such as bipolar disorder or Tourette's syndrome)
  • Chronic health issues.

In order to apply for accommodations, students should create an account first at www.ged.com and then complete the GED Testing Service Registration Form® and state/jurisdiction form.  On the GED Testing Service Registration Form® students should indicate their interest in applying for accommodations by selecting Yes on the question that asks about testing modifications based upon a documented disability or disorder.  Once these registration forms are completed, students receive an email (email used in registration process) providing a link to the accommodation forms, guidelines, and directions for  where to submit the request documentation.
