Thousands of GED® graduates enroll and succeed in college every year. Passing the GED® test with an average score of 500, ranks you in the top 50 percent of test scores and tells colleges you have the skills and knowledge to succeed.

You may still be required to take additional tests, such as the ACT or the SAT as part of the admissions process. You should contact the college's admissions office to find out what requirements they have.

And once you've earned a GED® test credential, college is possible. Plus, you're eligible for financial aid, just like a traditional high school graduate.
