GED Information

If an individual passes the GED®, he or she will receive a Utah High School Completion Diploma. This diploma will allow an individual to enroll at a college or other post-secondary education program.

IMPORTANT MILITARY INFORMATION
Branches of the military require a student to earn a traditional diploma for acceptance. Once a student has successfully passed the GED® and earned a High School Completion Diploma, he/she may not transfer that completion diploma to a traditional diploma and consequently run the risk of losing the military opportunity. Some branches of the military may consider acceptance of a GED® recipient if a minimum of 15 credits are earned at an accredited college or university. It is suggested that students check with a recruiter for specific regulations. 
 
EDUCATION WITHDRAWAL
AND APPLICATION FORM
Form Only Available At High School of Residence
 
Utah State Board of Education Rule R277-702 states that any individual leaving school before high school graduation will be considered an out -of-school youth and must secure an "Education Withdrawal and Application Form" from a high school counselor in the school of residence or boundary school.
  • As of July 1, 2012: sixteen (16) to eighteen (18) year old out-of-school youth must first access a Utah state-sponsored adult education program. The adult education program will validate the official withdrawal from public education and activate the candidate's GED® registration. For any sixteen (16) year-old, verification must be made to ensure that the applicant has the academic readiness necessary to take the GED® Test.
