Since mid-2014, the GED is no longer the only option
available in order to meet High School completion
requirements, in California. Therefore, test preparations
for the
HiSET (High School Equivalency Test) and,
possibly, the
TASC (Test Assessing Secondary
Completion) have been discussed. However, due to the
fact that these alternative tests are not accepted by all 50
States we are staying with the
GED at this time.

The Governor signed California Senate Bill 725 earlier
in September.  That bill exempted the class of 2015
from having to pass the CAHSEE in order to graduate.  
However, SB 172 extended that reach by including the
class of 2014 then the Governor requested that it
include all classes since the inception of the CAHSEE
graduation requirement.
Therefore, since SB 172 is signed by the Governor, it
is the law.  This means that all students who
completed all of their graduation requirements and
didn't pass the CAHSEE will receive their actual
Diploma instead of a Certificate of Completion.

Official statement from GED regarding GED testing and the potential impact of
           the Corona Virus (as of 03/11/2020)

We understand that test centers, educators and GED students may be concerned about COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and
how it may impact GED testing. We are monitoring the situation carefully and are following guidance provided by
governing bodies, Pearson and Pearson VUE. At this time, GED test centers across most of the country are operating
normally and are using standard precautions.

Test centers that deliver the GED are controlled locally and are advised to make any closure decisions based upon
information provided by local and state authorities and government agencies. Test centers that decide to close for any
period of time should notify Pearson VUE immediately, so that they can cancel tests appointments and notify students of
their test cancellations as quickly as possible. Test centers should call 1-866-389-3665, option #2 to report a closure.

Students who are impacted due to test center closures will receive notification that their test has been cancelled and their
testing fees will be refunded. Students can reschedule their test on for when the testing site has reopened, or at
another open test center.

To maintain a safe testing environment at GED test centers, we are asking test administrators and test-takers to follow the
guidance below:

Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds prior to arriving at the test center, and after
Cover your cough and sneeze with your arm or elbow, not your hands
Utilize hand sanitizer when available
Avoid touching your face
Stay at home from work or reschedule your test if you are feeling unwell or have symptoms such as a fever or respiratory

We are committed to the safety or GED test-takers and test center workers. We will continue to monitor the situation and
provide additional information as needed.
