No-Cost Online GED Course

By March 14, 2007

Follow me on:

Many online colleges require that applicants finish high school or have a GED before being admitted. If you need to complete this requirement, you’re in luck. A new website, GEDforFree (off-site link), is offering a free online course to prepare students to pass the GED exam. According to the site:
"The GED credential is highly regarded by both colleges and employers. In fact, the American Council on Education (ACE) reports that nearly all the employers throughout the nation are prepared to offer the same benefits, wages, and opportunities for advancement to GED graduates as they are to regular high school graduates. This is one reason the GED is referred to as a 'high school equivalency' test."
Be aware that you will still need to pay for the exam itself and that not all colleges accept the GED for admission requirements.

I am a teacher for Pinellas County School in Florida. We are now developing an online GED Class for students who cannot make it into the classroom.

My website, http://www.MYGEDClass.com has some information about this.

If anyone should have questions or concerns about gaining a G.E.D. you want to contact your local library, it is very resourceful.

I just registered for the “GED for Free” course and had no trouble. It looks like a legitimate site that manages to exist because it carries a lot of ads. Just ignore the ads and I think you will be happy with it. It was probably having start-up problems, but looks okay now.

I also had some problems in finding a right GED course. Considering online Ged school at Belfordhighschool.com is the way to go. It will surely meet your expectations.

this site is a trick it said u can get ur ged online for free i can go to my class if i wanted that but i have no time with me taking care of my kid to go so i need to find an online coarse i can take instead of going to thte school ….

June 10, 2009 at 4:16 pm
(16) rose says:

Nikole, you CANNOT get a GED online. Its against the law. You have to take the test in person at a testing site. Or else how would they know if you weren’t just cheating? You can take prep courses online though and just sign up to take the test somewhere.

July 28, 2009 at 4:54 pm
(17) Jolitha says:

I don’t think this site is legit! When you fill out the enrollment it doesn’t let you take the test like it says it will after filling out the form. I would like to know why? That’s just a waste of time if you ask me!

I have a diploma from the Belford High School Online, and I will be the first to tell you it is a fake, I can’t get into college or anything with it… No matter how good it sounds don’t do it, I lost $250 by doing it!!! No matter what you are told or read U CANNOT take the GED test online and expect it to be accredited… U have to take it in person… I wanted to go to school for my bachelor’s degree and now i have to get my GED first.

February 18, 2010 at 1:19 am
(24) Cody says:

I have a “diploma” from Belford High School as well and am extremely disappointed with the organization. It is obviously a false institution because no colleges accept it’s accreditation status. Save yourselves the time and money ($250+), stay away from online tests that promise tangible results.

March 2, 2010 at 11:09 am
(25) Wayne says:

This is not a website that gives you a GED or a high school diploma, its a site that helps get you prepared to write your GED at your local state or provincial writing location….its free, and if you make an appointment with a writing location, and pass you have an actual GED.

i recently went to take my GED test and my neighbor told me he could get it for me cheaper cause his cousin works at the place that issues it. Well i went ahead and did it an d now my job cant find it at all so i think i got ripped off. If i dont get my GED quick i loose my job and i have a good job. Can someone tell me the quickest way possible to do it over? Thanks

May 6, 2010 at 6:51 am
(29) Cristen says:

Sherry, the quickest way to get you GED is to take the test at an actual testing facility. Check with your local community college; that is usually where the test is taken.

As for http://www.gedforfree.com, it is ONLY A PREPARATION COURSE site. I am using it to prepare get my own GED and I assure you it’s a good help so far.

My advice to everyone who is trying to get their GED online; stop trying. Almost, if not all the sites that say they can test you ONLINE and give you an official GED are complete scams.

for some reason all the online free ged classes they are not free and some of them say that they will send an email immediately to an email address that i give then i wait about 15 to 30 minutes and the email is not sent or they will say do you wanna go to college and i’m just trying to get my ged

Wow I can’t believe all the comments about paying $250 dollars for an education. I only looked on here for a friend to help her and read all of these comments. Do you all think college is going to be free too. Let me tell ya I have my GED and I presently go to the University of Phoenix and it is not for free you have to repay all the loans just to go to college and if you don’t they will get it. So stop your whining and just pay for it. Trust me your possibilities will be better than they are now.

(43) HS Dropout says:

GED’s and High School Diplomas are not as easy to get nowadays in my opinion. They have added so much to the high school diploma education system that there are more credit requirements to get in order to receive a diploma. It makes me wonder how long old diplomas will be valid since they are so out of date lol. But then again that makes me wonder what “THEIR” purpose of a high school diploma really is. This I wonder because they put GED’s and HSD into 2 categories. If they are so particular about each one and what it is worth, then how can they continue to justify that GED’s and High School diplomas are so different when High School Diplomas become outdated with growing technology and historical discoveries that correct mistakes made in the text books? I conclude that they will never have a solid High School Diploma “text book list” that will be correct and finished.

Don’t trust your GED prep to free programs! They make money either from us tax payers (non-profits, colleges,etc.) or from advertising. The college professors who own GED Institute are dedicated to your success on the GED tests.

Undeniably believe that which you stated.
Your favorite reason seemed to be on the net the simplest thing to be
aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while
people think about worries that they just do not know about.
You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take
a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

Greetings from Ohio! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to check
out your website on my iphone during lunch break.

I love the information you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home.

I’m shocked at how fast your blog loaded on my mobile .. I’m not even using WIFI,
just 3G .. Anyways, fantastic site!

The site sucks, it really does. There are errors on the assessment test, and I don’t see any real practice in the math. Also after the assessment it is up to you to figure out the areas you need to study, which I could have done without the assessment. There HAS to be a better site than this one.
