About the GED

Nearly all U.S. colleges and universities accept the GED credential. Universities in many other countries like Thailand, Bangladesh, Nepal, UAE, South Africa, New Zealand, and more also recognize it for admission. A GED credential is proof that you have U.S. high school-level academic and English skills. Please check with your prospective university on their admissions policy to find out whether they accept the GED credential.
