For GED Testers:

2002 series GED testing was closed out as of December 31, 2013. You may still use this form if you completed tests between 2002 and 2013, but have never completed an Online Demographic Form using our system. This form will only be available through March 31, 2014, and is ONLY to help post scores for testers with no demographic record.

Follow these steps to complete an online demographic record:

STEP 1: Obtain a University of Texas at Austin Electronic ID (“UT EID”)

You must have a UT EID in order to log in and complete the online demographic form. Click here to go to the the GED Demographic Form

  • After clicking the link above, find the “I need a UT EID” link. Click it.
  • On the UT EID Self-Service Tools page, click on “Get a UT EID.”
  • Provide at least your name and date of birth.
  • Include a working e-mail address to receive updates on your status.
  • Answer three security questions.
  • Create your own password (your EID will be assigned by the system).
  • After you have an EID, GO BACK to the demographic login page to begin your demographic record.

Creating a UT EID does NOT create an online demographic record! Continue to Step 2.

Step 2: Create your GED Demographic record

Once you have a UT EID and password, you are ready to log in and create your GED Demographic record, starting from the demographic login page:

  1. Click here to go to the GED Demographic Homepage.

  2. Log in using your EID and password. You should see a confirmation pop-up.

  3. Click the “Complete the Online Demographic Form,” which takes you to instructions and then the FIRST page of the form.

  4. If a box pops up asking if you want to display non-secure items, click “Yes.”

  5. You MUST choose an ID option in order to save your demographic record. The demographic form is secured, so it is safe to use a social security number. If you do not have a SSN, check the ” I do not have a SSN” option for the ID. An ID will be assigned to you when your Test Center approves the record.

  6. Read item 1 carefully. If you are testing in the Texas state system for the first time (even if you have previous tests since 2002), answer “No” to this question. If you answer “Yes” to this item, the form will not let you continue.

  7. Answer questions 1-9 on the first page and click “Save & Continue.” The form will prompt you to complete any missing answers or correct any errors. Saving page 1 of the form saves the record in the UT system — you can log in and come back to complete at any time.

  8. On page 2, questions 13, 14, 16, 17, and 19 can have more than one answer. Answer all that apply to you. Click “Save & Continue.”

  9. On page 3, question 20 can have more than one answer — click all that apply to you.

  10. Your test scores are confidential and secured at The Texas Education Agency (TEA). However, if you answer “Yes” to question 21, your employer, a school, or the military may call TEA to verify your score results. If you choose “No”, you will have to provide written permission in order for TEA to release your test results to anyone other than directly to you.

Step 3: Select your Test Center

Choose the test site at which you tested.

  1. On the bottom of page 3, click “Select a Test Center.”
  2. If you do not know the code of the Test Center where you wish to register, click on the Test Centers link on this page that lists Texas centers alphabetically by city. Write down the red, 4-digit number of your center so that you can fill in that number on page 4 of the form to save it. Close the search window.
  3. Once you have entered the 4-digit Test Center number, click “Save Test Center Selection.”
  4. Once you have selected a Test Center, you have 6 months in which to register to take your first GED test. You MUST contact your chosen Test Center directly in order to register with them to take your tests.
  5. If you need to change your Test Center selection, you may log in with your EID and password, go to the Test Center Selection page, type in the new test center number, and save the selection.

Attention Smart Phone Users!

Although the GED Demographic Form can be accessed using a Smart Phone (iPhone, Android, etc.), it is NOT recommended. The UT EID requires that the IP address from your computer or phone stays the same, and Smart Phone IP addresses change more easily than a computer. Every time the IP address changes, you will be prompted to log in again.

If you must use a Smart Phone, please follow these guidelines:

  • If possible, sign into the GED Demographic Form using a wireless (Wi-Fi) network. There are many free networks available at restaurants, coffee shops, libraries, and other public buildings. A Wi-Fi network will maintain a set IP address and will help prevent login problems.
  • If you can only access the internet through your service provider’s data plan, try to stay in one place until the demographic form is completed and saved. If you move by walking or driving while using your Smart Phone, it is more likely that the IP address will change and you may lose your information.
  • If you experience trouble completing the GED Demographic Form, we recommend that you use a desktop or laptop computer. You may be able to arrange to use a computer at a GED test center or library branch.

Once a GED Examiner has approved your demographic record, the only information you will be able to change online is your name and address. To check on your GED scores for the 2002 test series, you must contact your Test Center or search The Texas Education Agency web site at www.texged.com for a certificate, or wait for a mailed transcript.
