GED Option Program

GED Option Program (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.
