According to current rule, there is a mandatory waiting period of 30 days between retakes for failed exams. Until further notice, Nebraska Department of Education will allow the following exceptions to the GED exam retake policy:

GED Testing Center – In-Person Testing & OnVue Testing – Online Proctored Exams
Waivers will be granted for early retakes by the GED Office at Nebraska Department of Education. Written waiver requests can be emailed to: or Phone calls for waivers will not be accepted. All retake waivers must be submitted in writing by email. Emails must include: test taker name listed in, date of birth, test subject and last date of test for that subject.

With an approved waiver, there will be no waiting period for the first two retakes. After taking a test subject three times, there will be a mandatory 60-day waiting period before retesting. A written waiver must be submitted prior to scheduling all retakes. The first exam cost is $36. The first two retake exams are discounted at $10 each for in-person testing. After receiving two retakes at the reduced price, the price of the test subject returns to the regular price.
