College with a GED? List of 433 Colleges that Accept a GED

Yes, your GED® allows for a college education and here is a full explanation of how it works including a list of colleges that accept GED grads with open hands.

During the past 3 years, as many as 35% of GED graduates have signed up for college courses within a year of earning their GED diploma.

Over 45 % have gone to college within 3 years after getting their GED, says GED Testing service.

These stats are encouraging and what’s more, GED grads are persistent and 90% of them graduates from college.

In general, colleges accept GED Diploma holders, but you might be asked to pass the ACT or SAT test.

However, there are acceptations to this rule.

If students score in the 165-174 range at their GED test, they will be waived from college placement tests such as SAT or ACT and can attend the course of their choice.

This is called a GED College-Ready result.

If students get more than 175 points on their GED Test (scoring takes place on a 100-200 scale), they will not only be waived ACT or SAT tests, they will also receive college credit.

Students may be eligible for up to 10 college credit hours. This is called a GED College-Ready + Credit result.

433 Colleges that Accept GED

Here is a list of 433 colleges that accept not only GED grads, but also the GED College-Ready results. It means that if you score a minimum of 165 points, you will not need to pass additionally ACT or SAT.

Verification of GED Diplomas

Colleges can easily verify GED Diplomas received from students by using the trustworthy Parchment Services that work together with GED Testing Service to provide digital GED Diplomas transcripts.

They do not provide a verbal verification or any other verification, only digital transcripts that are using a secure Blue Ribbon delivery technology.

These digital secure Smart Transcripts offer also explanations and evaluations of the GED diplomas.

Parchment works with academic and non-academic institutions.
