Available Testing - GED
Tyler Junior College is a testing center for the G. E. D., which is administered at the TJC West Campus (Tyler, Texas).
Students must now pre-register to take the GED test. Space is limited to 30 registered testing candidates per testing session. You can pre-registration by visiting the TJC Testing Center in Rogers Student Center located on the TJC main campus on the corner of Lake and Baxter. At the time of pre-registration, candidates will receive instructions on how to create a GED student account (a student account must be created prior to testing) and information needed on test day. For more information, please call the Testing Center at 903-510-2050 or 903-510-2389. Walk-ins or stand-by candidates on the day of the test who have not pre-registered will NOT be tested.
