For the millions of Americans who have not finished high school, the G.E.D. diploma serves as a bridge to education and employment opportunities that were previously closed to them. A G.E.D. diploma is accepted by 97% of colleges and universities as proof that they have completed their high school education. Some colleges even have special scholarship programs available for G.E.D. graduates. In addition, the G.E.D. diploma is accepted by employers just like a high school diploma in regard to hiring, salary and opportunity for advancement. As such, G.E.D. recipients are more likely to get a better job and earn significantly more money than high school dropouts who do not return to school.
Every year, hundreds of thousands of people earn their G.E.D. diploma. People like you. Maybe you had to leave high school to help take care of your family. Maybe you just didn't like school, or didn't think a high school diploma would mean anything - and now you know what it means not to have it. It's not too late.
