GED Information in Hawaii

GED Registration in Hawaii

Hawaii does not enforce residency requirements for the GED exam. Testers can expect to pay $150 for the entire GED battery of tests in this state. The minimum age allowed to take the GED exam in Hawaii is 18 without additional documentation and 16 with additional documentation.

Unlike many states, those taking the test in Hawaii are required to have instruction prior to sitting for the exam if their goal is a diploma; instruction can be either in-person classes or online preparation. Testers are not required to take the Official GED Practice Test offered by Steck-Vaughn. Additionally, adults who simply want the GED transcript rather than a diploma can take the test without completing the instruction.

Some testing sites in the state test monthly, while others administer exams intermittently throughout the year. Test-takers can attempt subject area tests three times with no waiting period in between, but after a third unsuccessful attempt there would be a 60-day waiting period before re-testing. The title of the credential awarded for passing the GED exam is the Hawaii Adult Community School Diploma.

In Hawaii, testers must earn a minimum standard score of at least 145 (out of 200 possible) for any single test. The Hawaii State Department of Education does not impose a time limit to successfully complete all four subject area tests.

Preparing For the Test in Hawaii
