General Educational Development (GED®)

General Educational Development (GED®)

North Carolina’s High School Equivalency (HSE) Diploma program offers instruction to assist learners in preparing to successfully pass a designated high school equivalency test. This test is designed to document knowledge and skills equivalent to that of a graduating high school senior.  A high school equivalency diploma is issued from the North Carolina Community College System upon successful completion of each component of the test.  Through December 31, 2014, North Carolina will use the General Education Development (GED®) assessment.  The System Office has released a Request for Proposals (RFP) to determine if additional HSE assessments will be used after December 31, 2014. 

General Educational Development (GED) is a program of instruction designed to prepare adult students to pass the GED® tests that lead to a high school diploma equivalency.

Students 16-17 years of age must contact the Basic Skills Director at their local community college to request drop release paperwork.

2014 Test Completers

 

North Carolina changed its GED® credentialing process from the awarding paper transcripts and GED® diplomas to a paperless electronic transcript system for students taking the test in 2014.

When test takers pass the GED® test, they receive a secure, electronic document delivered to their email address. The document will includes a transcript and an electronic copy of their North Carolina GED® diploma.

The 2014 tester has the option to order a professionally printed North Carolina GED® diploma free of charge. Students can also forward the free electronic transcript they receive directly to potential colleges and employers.
