GED is an acronym for General Educational Development. Upon completion with passing scores on the GED, you will receive a Certificate of High School Equivalency. 97% of higher education institutions and 95% of employers report accepting the GED as the equivalent of a high school diploma. To be eligible to take the Nevada GED you must be a Nevada resident and 18 years of age (or 17 years of age with written permission from a legal guardian and must have verification of withdrawal from high school).
There are several GED test centers throughout the state. Contact the test center where you plan to take the test for information on dates and times.
