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.
Massachusetts GED Retesting
If you took the Massachusetts GED test and did not pass, you don’t have to take the whole test again, just the parts you did not pass, and there is no waiting period before you can retest. However, you can’t take one test over again before you’ve taken all five GED subject tests, and you must take all five within one year. You have two years after that to retake the tests, and must pass all five tests within the three years or you will need to retake all the tests. Before you test again, go back and study, to make sure that you’re prepared. The fee to retest in Massachusetts is $15 per subject.
