The GED stands for General Educational Development. As listed at the State Department of Education's Office Of Adult And Community Education page located at http://www.myscschools.com/offices/ace/, "The mission of the GED Testing Program is to provide adults who have not graduated from high school a means by which they may earn a high school diploma, which may lead to entrance into higher education, increased opportunities for employment, or military enlistment. The GED Testing Program is designed to provide an alternative way to obtain a high school credential for people who have dropped out of high school and have not completed requirements for a high school diploma. The Test of General Educational Development (GED) is a group of five multiple choice tests that are designed to measure the general knowledge and thinking skills that it takes to earn a high school diploma. Anyone who is at least 17 years of age, not enrolled in school, and does not already have a high school diploma from an accredited school may take the GED tests."

Most colleges will accept a homeschool diploma and transcript. There are very few that will not, and those few may only accept a GED. If you decide to have your homeschool child take the GED test, please use it only as a last resort. Colleges, military and some others will treat the GED applicant differently then the homeschool diploma applicant. GED applicants are often put on probation for a minimum period when they enroll in a program; whereas, the homeschool high school diploma students are not.
