GED Testing Service provides reasonable and appropriate accommodations to individuals with documented disabilities who demonstrate a need for accommodations. Test accommodations are individualized and considered on a case-by-case basis.
Before you request any testing accommodations, you must complete the following steps:
- Create a MyGED account by signing up on GED.com or log in to your MyGED account if you have an active account.
- Answer Yes on the GED Testing Service Registration form on the last question asking, “Do you need to request accommodated testing conditions for a documented disability?”
- Once the registration form is submitted, you will receive an email indicating where you will submit your accommodations request form and supporting documentation.
- List of accommodation types that can be requested
- For more information, visit the GED Testing Accommodations webpage.
Note: All accommodation requests are processed through GED Testing Accommodations. The Colorado GED Testing Office does not approve any accommodation requests.
- Guidelines for Evaluators
An "Evaluator" is the professional diagnostician (typically a doctor or psychologist) who will be providing documentation supporting the candidate's need for accommodations.
