High School Equivalency

A high school diploma remains the primary ticket to many entry-level jobs, and is also a prerequisite for promotions, occupational training, and postsecondary education. GED Testing Service offers the only nationally recognized opportunity to earn a high school-equivalency credential.


The GED® test has been used since 1942 to assess knowledge typically developed in a four-year high school education program. The 2014 GED® test consists of four (4) tests designed to measure high school level of military personnel who are not high school graduates.
