Both the Longview and Kilgore testing centers will offer limited spots to take the 2002 written version of the GED test this semester.

The written GED test is administered over a two-day period.

Registration deadline for the Longview testing center is the Thursday prior to each test.

Two more paper administrations of the 2002 GED will be offered at the Kilgore testing center Oct. 8-9 and Nov. 5-6.

Registration deadline for each Kilgore testing session is the Monday prior to the test.
