Louisiana 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.

Louisiana GED Retesting

If you took the LA GED test and did not pass, you don’t have to take the whole test again, just the parts you did not pass. Before you test again, go back and study, to make sure that you’re prepared. The state of Louisiana requires that you take classes before testing again if you are younger than 19, and your instructor will need to decide when you are ready to take the test. The usual fee to retest in Louisiana is $50 but it will be different at different testing centers. Your GED test scores expire after five years in Louisiana, so you must pass all five tests within five years, or else you’ll need to retake them.
