The General Education Development (GED) diploma is a qualification in maths, literature, science and arts for those who did not graduate from high school. The GED is a nationally recognized qualification and can be taken in all US states although the specific details of getting results will vary between states and test centers.
If you have recently taken the tests you can expect to get your results through the post within a few weeks. If you think they may have got lost, contact the center where you took the test and ask if they can resend your results although they will not be able to tell you the results over the phone.
If you have lost your GED results, contact the center where you took the test to ask for a duplicate transcript (you will normally need to pay a small administration fee for this). Depending on the specific center you may be able to apply for a copy of your results online or you may need to request a form which you fill in and then mail to the testing center.
If you took your GED test whilst in the military, in a correctional facility or from overseas, then the details of your results will not normally be kept at that institution. In this case, use the American Council on Education’s website to find the specific organization who will have the records (i.e. www.acenet.edu/Content/NavigationMenu/ged/test/after/transcr).
