Going to College with Just a G.E.D.

Posted by Lifetime Adoption on May 28, 2013

Q: I left school to have my baby at sixteen. I placed by my baby for adoption, right after she was born. It was a super hard thing to do, but I didn't want my mother raising her! That would have been a major downer. So, with the help of an amazing school counselor, I managed to pass my GED. It’s not a standard high school diploma and I am afraid it will hurt my chances of going back to school. Can I still go to college? Help!

A: "G.E.D." stands for General Educational Development test. It is a test that anyone can take to measure their mastery of high school level skills. Most colleges accept the G.E.D. as qualifications to enter their programs. However, the pressure is on at major state, private and university campuses to be the best of the best.
