Beginning January, 2013, the GED test will change from a pencil/paper test to a computer test. At that time, the testing site will move to Ashley Valley Education Center located at 559 North 1700 West. When this change is implemented, registration and payment for GED testing will need to be completed online. For additional information or to register for the test, please visit the GED Testing Service website at www.GEDcomputer.com.
SUMMARY OF CHANGES
- Effective July 1, 2009, any person passing the Utah GED Tests will be issued a Utah High School Completion Diploma.
- Credits towards any high school diploma for passing the GED Tests cease June 30, 2009.
- The age of eligibility to take GED Tests, formerly 17, is now sixteen (16).
- Permission for GED testing applicants to show GED testing examiners they are eligible to test are through (a) school district notification of the student's formal withdrawal and (b) parental/guardian permission by completion of the "Adult Education Program and/or GED Testing Application for 16-18 Year -Old Non-Graduates."
ELIGIBILITY FOR GED TESTING
If the applicant's graduating class has NOT graduated, the applicant must be out of school and be between 16 and 18 years of age to be eligible to take GED Tests. Processes involving high school principals, counselors and local adult education programs exist to assure that potential applicants and parents/guardians are fully aware of the consequences of dropping out of school and pursuing GED testing. For these applicants, GED Testing Centers require the completion of the authorization form, "Adult Education Program and/or GED Testing Application for 16-18 Year-Old Non-Graduates" which is to be obtained from the counselors in public high schools, districts, accredited charter schools or special purpose schools in Utah.
Finally, 16-year-old persons seeking admission to a GED Testing Center must first access a Utah state-sponsored adult education program for verification that the applicant has the academic readiness necessary to take the GED Tests. Such verification by an adult education program is not a guarantee that the applicant will pass the tests.
