Online GED Classes Available for Free

While most GED classes require payment of a registration fee, there are a few websites that offer free online GED classes.


The GED Academy, which administers the site, provides a free mini-course with sample lessons from each of the four test sections:

  • Mathematical Reasoning
  • Science
  • Social Studies
  • Reasoning Through Language Arts

The mini-course is made up of short videos that will guide the students through the test material. Students will need to provide their name and email address before starting the mini-course. Students can also take a 20-minute practice test and access study resources at no charge.


While the website contains banner ads, it offers a no-cost GED prep course after students complete the registration process. Students can work on the course at any time, with no specific time commitment required. Practice tests and study tips are also available for free. The course reviews all of the topics found on the GED. After registration, students may receive email advertisements from website sponsors.


This website offers free video classes that review math, language, science, and social studies. Students can watch more than 450 short videos on specific subjects within each of the four test topics without the need to provide personal data or create an online account. The site also offers no-cost timed practice tests, printable practice tests, and online tests that are not timed. Banner advertising from website sponsors are found on each page of the site.
