Changes Ahead for GED Students

If you (or someone you know) are partly finished with work on a GED (General Equivalency Diploma), then you have a deadline looming!

After December 31, 2013, the GED format and tests will be completely redone.  Anyone who has already started work toward their high school equivalency diploma should do everything they can to complete their work by that date.  Beginning January 1, 2014, all unfinished students will need to completely start over on their GED.  All the work and tests passed will basically be erased.  Having to start over means the money already spent for workbooks and testing will also be wasted.  Starting the GED process over also means starting from scratch in paying for it.

Completing high school equivalency is one of the best investments you can make in your future.  Many employers require or prefer applicants to have a high school equivalency diploma.  To find information about finishing the GED, go to  In Iowa, community colleges are the primary providers of high school equivalency education.
