In North Dakota, students will receive their GED diploma if they pass the four subject tests of the GED exam. These tests can be taken at state-designated testing centers or online.
To register for the GED® test or the GED Ready® official practice tests, students need to create an account on the GED.com website.
The General Education Development (GED) exam is a challenging assessment, and getting perfectly prepared is crucial. In general, GED students require 2-3 months to get fully prepared.

North Dakota GED Price
If you take the GED exam in a North Dakota testing center, it costs $36 per subject test or $144 for the full four-test battery.
In North Dakota, the online proctored (O.P.) GED test will also set you back $36 per module, or $144 in total, but you may add the four GED Ready tests as well to your cost. That’s $6.99 per subject, so $28 in total.
To qualify for online GED testing, you first need to reach “green” scores (in the likely to pass section) on the GED Ready practice test, available from GED.com at $6.99 each. There’s a GED Ready test for each GED sub-exam, so that’s $28 on top of the testing fees.
