What is GED?
The General Educational Development (GED) tests provide persons who did not complete
high school with an opportunity to earn a high school equivalency. By taking and
passing a series of five tests they have acquired a level of learning that is comparable
to that of high school graduates.
Why take a GED test?

- GED graduates are as likely to attend college as high school graduates of the
same age, family background, and ability who did not enroll immediately after high
- GED graduates are as likely to persist in college as other "returning adult" college
students of the same age, family background and ability.
- GED graduates participate in vocational training as frequently as high school
- GED graduates who entered college, gained about the same wage benefit per year
of college as did regular high school graduates.
