To be eligible for a GED in Alberta, you must be at least 18 years of age (as of September 1st of the current school calendar) and be out of school for a minimum of 10 consecutive months. It is also required that you have fewer credits needed for obtaining a high school diploma.
In order to earn your GED, you must pass all five GED (general educational development) tests. This means a score of 450 or better on each test.
To apply for a GED, you must apply to the principal of the senior high school in the city or town in which you currently reside.
While you may be “getting by” now, earning a GED gives you more opportunities to secure a higher paying job. In many Alberta industries, a GED or high school diploma is a requirement as a condition of employment. With a GED, you can continue your education in vocational training or at university. You will also feel great about yourself!
