General Education Development (GED) Tests

General Information The GED Testing Program provides an opportunity for individuals who did not complete a high school program of instruction to have the learning acquired through a variety of everyday life experiences evaluated and recognized. Individuals have to be able to read, compute, interpret information, and express themselves in writing on a level comparable to that of 60 percent of graduating high school seniors. For more additional information, please visit the GED Website of Utah State Office of Education. USOE GED

GED tests make it possible to earn a High School Completion Diploma, future opportunities to pursue higher education, obtain jobs or promotions, and achieve personal goals.

96% of companies accept applicants with a GED credential for jobs requiring a high school diploma.

GED tests are internationally recognized. They have been designed to measure major academic skills and knowledge in core content areas that are learned during four years of high school. When an adult passes all five test modules/sections, the resulting GED credential certifies that he or she has attained subject matter knowledge and skills associated with high school completion.
