GED - General Educational Development

The new GED program launches on January 2, 2014; the GED test was overhauled to better prepare adults without a high school diploma for higher education and the workforce.

The 2014 GED test is the only high school equivalency program fully aligned to state college and career readiness standards. The 2014 GED test series has four test modules.

  • A skills assessment to help test-takers match skills with possible careers, and focus on career plans to get to better jobs with better wages.
  • Access to information and resources to help test-takers apply for college or training programs and fill out financial aid forms.
