General Educational Development

Program Introduction

The General Educational Development Test (GED) consists of four subject tests that once passed, earn you a high school equivalency credential. The four subjects are language arts, math, social studies, and science. It proves you have a grade 12 education—even without a traditional diploma. A GED and a high school diploma are more similar than different. A high school diploma signifies high school graduation. It shows you attended and passed all the required classes in a traditional high school setting. Both allow students to join the workforce, launch a career, or attend college. While traditional high school students need four years to complete classes and graduate, the GED is a 7-hour test; preparing for it typically takes less than a year. In most states, you can take the GED tests any time after age 16.
