General Education Development (GED) Testing Information:
Advisory Against Misleading GED Claims
Please be advised that the Michigan GED High School Equivalency Certificate can be neither earned nor obtained via the Internet or through correspondence programs. The Tests of General Educational Development (GED Tests)-developed by the General Educational Development Testing Service of the American Council on Education (GED Testing Service) -require extensive preparation and the demonstration of a high level of high school knowledge and academic skills. The GED Tests are administered in Michigan only at Official GED Testing Centers under the direction of the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Growth. Any other high school equivalency certificates not issued by the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Growth or another jurisdictional GED testing authority may be of dubious value and may not be accepted by employers, colleges and universities, or the military.
Dianne Duthie, Director of the Division of Lifelong Learning, Bureau of Workforce Transformation, has ordered a moratorium on opening new GED testing centers in Michigan until further notice, while we wait to see how legislation for new adult learning collaboratives take shape.
