General Education 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 education diploma exam.
GED exams are scheduled throughout the year and you should have at least the equivalent of a grade nine to ten background to attempt the exam. A study guide is available in the college bookstore. Completion of the GED exam is not accepted for admission to college or university programs. For an application form or a schedule of the exam dates, contact the Academic Upgrading Department Office at 780-539-2707.
