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.
