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.
