The purpose of accommodations is to provide candidates with full access to the GED® test. However, accommodations
are not a guarantee of improved performance or test completion. GED® Testing Service provides reasonable and appropriate
accommodations to individuals with documented disabilities who demonstrate a need for accommodations.
Test accommodations are individualized and considered on a case-by-case basis. Consequently, no single type of
accommodation (e.g. extra time) would necessarily be appropriate for all individuals with disabilities. Simply
demonstrating that an individual meets diagnostic criteria for a particular disorder does not mean that the person
is automatically entitled to accommodations.
Test-takers seeking accommodations will register at http://www.ged.com. During the registration
process, test-takers seeking accommodations will select, “yes,” when asked whether they intend to apply for testing modifications
(accommodations) based upon a documented disability. After selecting, “yes,” test-takers will receive an email with specific
information regarding where to submit their accommodations request, including a link to the
GED Testing Service will make all accommodations decisions. Test-takers will be notified in writing of the accommodations decision,
usually within 30 days. If approved, test-takers will be given specific instructions for how to schedule their accommodated GED® Tests
with the Pearson VUE Accommodations Scheduling team. If not approved, test-takers will be advised about the appeal procedures.
Note: Candidates approved for accommodations cannot schedule their GED® test with accommodations online; they will get an email
with instructions to contact the Pearson VUE Accommodations Scheduling Team.
