In Arizona, students looking to earn their GED diploma have to pass the four separate GED subtests at one of Arizona’s testing centers or online.
To register for the GED® test or for the GED Ready® practice tests, the candidates must set up their account with the website GED.com.
Preparation for the GED exam is key, and students usually need a few months to pass the GED test successfully.

Arizona GED Price
When taken at an Arizona test center, the price of the GED test is $41 for each of the four GED subject tests or $164 for the complete GED battery.
If you take the online GED test, each subtest will set you back $41 as well, so your total online GED testing cost will be $164. You should, however, also count the additional cost of the four GED Ready tests ($28), so your total amount will add up to $192.
To be eligible for online GED testing, you must first reach passing scores (in the “green” range) on the GED Ready practice tests that are available at $6.99 on the website GED.com. You need to pass four GED Ready tests, one per GED sub-exam, so that’ll be $28 on top of the testing fees.
If you sign up for Onsego’s Advantage Plan, however, you receive 4 vouchers for the GED Ready test for free.

GED Testing Service has introduced an online proctored testing version. For more details, check out online proctored GED testing.

High school equivalency: 145 to 164
College-ready: 165 to 174
College-ready + college credits: 175 to 200
Upon completion of the exam, you will be awarded the GED diploma, which is accepted in the same way as a standard high school diploma by practically all North American employers and schools.
