Arizona GED Testing Eligibility

You must be at least 18 years old to take the GED Test in Arizona, and you must not have a high school diploma or high school equivalency diploma. If you are 16 or 17 years old, you can be tested if you meet special eligibility requirements:

  • You must have a signed and notarized statement of test consent from a parent or legal guardian.
  • You must also have verification from the last school you attended, certifying that you have formally withdrawn from school or are not enrolled in any school.
  • Finally, you must have two forms of identification, including a photo ID and proof of age such as a birth certificate.

Don’t take the Arizona GED test unless you’re prepared. You can pass, but if you’re like most people, you’ll need some brush-up and to get familiar with the test. Find out about GED online classes.

Arizona GED: College Eligibility

More than 60 percent of GED test-takers plan to go on to college. The GED exam can help you get there. Ninety-eight percent of colleges and universities in the U.S. accept the GED credential, though some colleges require additional tests, such as the SAT or the ACE. Check with the admissions offices of the colleges you’re interested in for their requirements. Beware of online high school degrees that colleges won’t accept.

Arizona GED Retesting

If you took the AZ GED Test and did not pass, you don’t have to take the whole test again, just the parts that you did not pass. You’ll keep your highest score, even if you retest and get a lower score. Before you test again, go back and study, to make sure that you’re prepared. The state of Arizona makes you wait 30 days before testing again, and you can’t retest for one subject before taking all the parts of the test. Based on the number of versions of the test, you may be limited in how many times you can take the test in a calendar year, from January 1 through December 31. Successful GED recipients are not allowed to retest for a higher score unless a higher score is required for admission to post-secondary education, training, or to meet employment requirements. Documentation is required.
