Advisory against Misleading GED Claims

Please be advised that the GED® Certificate can be neither earned nor obtained via the Internet or through correspondence programs. The Tests of General Educational Development (GED Tests)--developed by the General Educational Development Testing Service of the American Council on Education (GED Testing Service) require extensive preparation and the demonstration of a high level of high school knowledge and academic skills. The GED Tests are administered in Texas only at Official GED Testing Centers under the direction of the Texas Education Agency (TEA) GED Unit. Any other high school equivalency certificates not issued by TEA or another jurisdictional GED testing authority may be of dubious value and may not be accepted by employers, colleges and universities, or the military.
