I am 16-24 years old and want to get my GED, what do I need to do?
If you are not enrolled yet, you will need to apply here. After you have completed the application you’ll be paired with a Talent Development Specialist who will work one-on-one with you to achieve those goals.
If you are already enrolled, reach out to your Talent Development Specialist and let them know you are ready to take your GED!
Do you have GED classes?
We are proud to partner with PAX Learning Center, a local non-profit organization that offers free tutoring and GED prep classes to people of all ages.
Classes are held multiple times a week on-site for Next participants.
You can find more information about their individual tutoring services on their website at https://paxlearningcenter.com/
Can you pay for my GED?
Next serves youth between the ages of 16-24 that are not in school. If you meet this criteria you are welcome to fill out our application and we can work with you to find out if you are eligible to receive GED fee assistance.
Can I test for my GED at Next, if I am not a participant?
Yes. Next is a registered testing site, and you can test for your GED at our location.
However, to receive Next program supportive services you would need to apply and we would work with you to determine your eligibility for additional services.
I’m not in the Next program, can I register for GED at your office?
All GED registrations must be completed via GED.com, not at the testing site.
My GED was canceled, I want a refund and I’m not in the Next program.
Next does not handle payments or refunds for GED registrations. All concerns regarding payment and refunds can be directed to GED.com and their customer service line at
Monday–Friday, 7:00 a.m.–7:00 p.m. CT;
Closed on local holidays.
