Additional Information

The non-refundable service fee is for the record search. It does not guarantee that the person has taken or earned a GED. The State GED Office will mail an official duplicate diploma only to an individual. For security and authenticity purposes, all official diplomas are mailed directly from the State GED® Office to the individual.

For your protection, the Privacy Act of 1974 requires written permission with your signature to release GED® scores. The State GED® Office and local GED® testing centers cannot release GED® score information over the telephone.
