NJ High School Equivalency Diploma Testing
Brookdale’s Testing Center is now able to offer the computerized GED test here on our Lincroft campus.
If you would like to test, please register on www.ged.com The fee is $120, which must be paid by a credit card. If you are 16 or 17 years old, you must also have written authorization from a parent or guardian. FInally, Brookdale’s Testing Center must also approve you in the system; please call us at 732-224-2584, leave a message, and someone will get back to you.
Please also make sure you have two valid ID’s. One must be a valid photo ID. Acceptable ID’s include State of NJ driver’s license or MVC Card, United States passport, a passport from another country which must be accompanied by a letter from your Consulate verifying authenticity, Monmouth County ID Card, or military ID. School or employment ID’s are unacceptable for primary IDs. The secondary ID can be any of the previous mentioned ID’s or a social security card, birth certificate, etc. This is because we must verify the following information: an identifiable photo, that you are a NJ resident, and your date of birth/age.

The State of NJ has announced that as of August 17, 2015, candidates will no longer be allowed to combine test scores from the three different state vendors, GED, HiSet, and TASC. If you have already started testing in more than one test, you will be able to finish any of the tests you’ve started and combine those scores. However, anyone who is starting an assessment as of August 17, 2015, can only pass by completing all sections of that one vendor’s test. If you have already started one test, please be sure to tell your Testing Center staff that you have already started testing so they can help you clarify your eligibility to test.
Important Information about the GED
As of January 1, 2014, the GED transitioned to a new form of the test. After that date, any tests marked as “incomplete” or “non-passed” are void, and candidates will have to take the entire test over again, not just the sections not passed or not yet taken.
The GED Testing Service website has additional information.
