Four states offer GED, TASC. or HiSET testing for free: New York, West Virginia, Connecticut, and Maine.

  • New York and West Virginia use the TASC (Test Assessing Secondary Completion)
  • Maine is using the HiSET (High School Equivalency Test) 
  • Connecticut uses the GED exam (but there is a small registration fee)

2 states partly subsidize the GED test:

  • Arkansas: the GED exam fee is $16 ($4 per module or test)
  • Maryland: the GED exam costs $45 for all 4 subjects, $11,25 per module
