Where Do You Obtain GED Records?

General Educational Development (GED) tests  are tests to measure the proficiency on four subject tests, namely,  science, mathematics, social studies, reading and writing.  These four tests measure academic competencies similar to many of those required of a high school graduate. Passing these tests certify that the test taker has American high school-level academic skills. For those, who were not able to complete their high school education, they can pass these GED tests and earn their high school equivalency certificate.

Now where do you get these GED records? Every state keeps a record of all GED records. If you are looking to get your GED records or somebody else’s GED record, this is what you need to do.

  1. Find out which state the GED tests were taken and GED credential was earned.
  2. Check the state’s department of education website to determine that state’s requirements for records requests. For instance, Nebraska Department of Education would provide the requirements for the state.
  3. To get the GED record of the person, most states require GED holder’s Full name, Date of birth, Social Security Number, Signature and FAX number or address where verification needs to be sent

Once you have submitted the request, you can expect to receive a verification that an official credential was earned and the date on which it was earned.  Most of the government institutions and universities  and employers recognize the GED test credential as the same as a high school diploma.
