How to Get a GED®

There are hundreds of websites offering GED® and high school diplomas. These websites, called diploma mills, are services that sell fake GED® credentials for a flat fee, usually promising it will take little work and time. What they do not tell you is the credential they are offering you is worthless beyond the money out of your pocket.

When considering a GED® credential, make your first contact your local adult education center. Legitimate GED® tests are not available online as claimed on these websites. Only a state can issue the GED® test credential, and in Kentucky, that means the official GED® testing centers. Your local adult education center will be able to not only steer you in the right direction, but also offer free study services.
