What is a GED?
The GED is a diploma by examination issued by the Department of Labor and Workforce Development. It's a 5-subject test (reading, writing, social studies, science and math), not taken all at once.
Applicants must be at least 16 years old. Students under 18 must submit a signed parent or guardian permission form and an official school withdrawal form before going through the GED Orientation.
