Here are a few things you should know about getting a GED.
In most states, generally, you must be 18 to take the GED without restrictions. Sometimes 17-year-olds are allowed after filing a special form, and if they can show special need. Different states have different rules.
Here’s a very important question — how will you USE your GED? For example, if you are applying for military enlistment, the GED is almost useless. And there are other problems associated with it, such as scholarships and grants.Most PRIVATE scholarships, trusts, organizations, and scholarship committees automatically make graduation from a recognized secondary institution a prerequisite for granting their scholarship money. This is a SCHOLARSHIP, and having a GED is not enough.
It is unfortunate, but true, that the GED has a stigma attached to it. Having a GED sends a warning to the those concerned that you had trouble in school — you were thrown out, or you got pregnant, or you were in a treatment center, or you were violent, or you were on drugs, or you couldn’t get along with others, or you couldn’t conform, and you were generally different. Ultimately it means you had to settle for less than normal.
Resolute Academy has a one-time enrollment fee of $497. You can’t buy a diploma. When you enroll, you will receive an email with your login and password to the class website within 24-48 hours. When your transcript is submitted and reviewed, you will receive an email listing the classes you need to complete to receive your diploma. The rest is up to you.
