General Educational Development (GED ) Program
The General Educational Development (GED) serves as a bridge to higher education, trade schools, apprenticeship programs and employment opportunities for Oregonians who have not earned a high school diploma. The program provides the GED test to adults without a high school credential.
The Oregon GED® program is administered by the HECC Office of Community Colleges and Workforce Development (CCWD). The office works in partnership with GED Testing Service (GEDTS), the 17 community colleges and other state, community, county and local partners to provide testing and preparation and instruction across the state. The Oregon GED program provides leadership, technical assistance, training, professional development and guidance in support of the new 2014 GED test series to community colleges, Oregon Department of Education Option Program, many community programs, and over 70 test sites across Oregon.
