Utah GED Requirements

  • Resident: You do not have to be a resident of Utah.
  • Age: You must be 18 years old or older. However, if you are 16 or 17, you are eligible if you have been formally withdrawn from the public secondary school system and have completed the Adult Education Program and/or GED Testing Application for 16-18 Year-Old Non-Graduates form. This form is obtained from Utah public high schools, charter schools, or special purpose residential schools. 16 year olds must access a Utah state-sponsored adult education program for verification of academic readiness necessary to take the GED tests. Verification by an adult education program is not a guarantee that the test-taker will pass the tests. Other eligibility requirements may be required.
  • Enrolled: You cannot be enrolled in an accredited high school or be a high school graduate.
  • Cost: Test Center: $36 (per subject) or $144 (all subjects). Online: $36 (per subject)
  • Score: 145 (minimum) in each subject
  • Accommodations: You must apply for disability accommodations through the GED® Testing Service page.
  • Diploma: After you pass the test, the State of Utah will award you a GED certificate that will show you have achieved the same level of knowledge as a high school graduate.
