Earn a General Education Development (GED) Certificate
The General Education Development (GED) program provides individuals with an opportunity to earn a high school equivalency credential, in place of a high school diploma. Earning a GED credential can help individuals improve their chances to find work, increase earnings over their lifetime and/or pursue additional education through community colleges, universities or training programs.
The Oregon GED program is Oregon's high school equivalency program, administered by the HECC Office of Community Colleges and Workforce Development (CCWD). The HECC works in partnership with GED Testing Service (GEDTS)
, the 17 community colleges and other state, community, county and local partners to provide GED preparation and testing to Oregonians across the state. For additional information, visit Oregon’s GED Program website
