General Educational Development
If you have not completed the course requirements for a high school diploma, but require recognition equivalent to a high school graduate for employment purposes, you may prepare to write the general educational high school diploma equivalent exam.
GED exams are scheduled throughout the year, once a month from September to June. A study guide is available in the college bookstore. Completion of the GED exam is not accepted for admission to college or university programs.
