Washington GED Testing Eligibility

If you are 16, 17, or 18 years old, a Washington State school district must decide you have a good reason for leaving the regular high school education program, or else you must be home-schooled. You may also take the WA GED exam if you are an active member of the military, national guard, or reserves, or if you are an adjudicated youth under the direction of prisons, jails, detention centers, parole and probation offices, and other corrections facilities while enrolled in school or ordered by a court or officer of the court.

Don’t take the Washington 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.
