GED® Test Credential (top)

I took and passed the test but the jurisdiction won’t issue my diploma. Can you help me?

Sorry to hear that you’re having trouble with your diploma. Have you contacted your local testing center or state administrator yet?

My guess is that there may be additional requirements that you need to meet. You should call your state’s office at (441) 239-4049.

Why do I need to work with my jurisdiction? Can’t I just get the diploma from you?

GED Testing Service develops the GED® test and works with each jurisdiction to offer the test. The credential is issued based upon rules of each individual state—most jurisdictions have slightly different rules and regulations. Because of the jurisdiction-by-jurisdiction differences, GED Testing Service doesn’t issue diplomas. That’s why we encourage you to work closely with your jurisdiction to get an answer.

After I start taking the exam modules, how much time do I have to complete all of them to get credentialed?

This depends on where you’re testing. In Bermuda you do not have a time limit to finish all four subjects.

What is the GED® credential in my jurisdiction called?

In Bermuda the credential is called the Bermuda High School Equivalency Diploma.
