General Educational Development Testing (GED)

The General Educational Development (GED) tests are developed by the General Educational Development Testing Service (GEDTS) of the American Council on Education.  The GED tests are designed to provide an opportunity for adults who have not graduated from high school to earn an equivalent credential.  Additionally, current State policy requires examinees to be residents of Washington in order to complete the GED test in Washington. 

Need help studying for the tests? Clark College offers Career and Academic Preparation (CAP) classes to help students prepare for the GED tests. 

Helpful Tips:

Do you need verification of GED status or an official GED transcript? If you tested in Washington after January 1, 2002 and were a resident at the time of testing you can obtain your GED status or GED transcript.
