Oregon General Equivalency Diploma (GED)

Oregon GED Program

The Oregon GED® program is administered by the Higher Education Coordinating Commission, Office of Community Colleges and Workforce Development.

The 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 new 2014 GED® test series has an increased emphasis on testing knowledge and skills needed for the workplace and for higher education. The 2014 GED® Test series covers four academic areas: Reasoning through Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, and Mathematical Reasoning. In addition to subject knowledge, the tests are aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and the Career and College Readiness Standards (CCRS).

Oregon GED Option (16-18, in School Students)

The General Educational Development Testing Service (GEDTS) enables approved states to provide access to the GED Option Program for selected secondary students who are enrolled in school. Oregon school districts and education service districts with an approved GED Option Program Application are given the opportunity to retain enrollment of 16 and 17-year-old students while they study for and take GED Subtests. Because they remain in school, students continue toward achieving the academic credits and Essential skills required for graduation and do not need an Exemption from Compulsory Attendance to access GED tests.
