General Educational Development (GED)
IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR ALL GED TEST TAKERS & THIRD
As of April 1st 2014, the Vermont Agency of Education
will begin no longer accepting paper, phone, fax, or email
requests for the fulfillment of GED credentials. This
change is a result of the 2014 GED program.
The General Educational Development (GED) tests include four exams that, when successfully passed, provide individuals who did not finish high school with an opportunity to earn a secondary school equivalency certificate. Employers, the military, colleges and technical educators and institutions recognize and accept the GED. The tests are designed to measure and represent the knowledge, skills and understanding that current high school seniors learn from their high school education.
GED testing services (including study and tutorial assistance)
are available throughout the state. Find the testing center
nearest you by clicking on the county you live in on the map.
Records & Transcripts
For GED Test Takers:
Original Certificates and Transcripts
A certificate of completion and a transcript (which includes

of completion by an employer, school, etc., GED test takers who
earned a credential before 2014 will now order duplicate copies
of transcripts and official Vermont GED certificates online at
