GED Digital Badges

Display your accomplishments on your social media pages and online resume with digital badges by Credly.

What is a digital badge?

Once you pass a test with ‘College Ready’ or ‘College Ready+Credit”, or earn your GED you’ll be awarded a badge through the Credly platform. Every badge you earn is a digital confirmation of your GED diploma and honors.

Your badges are shared and verified online easily and securely. You can also share them online for maximum visibility and recognition by employers, colleges, and friends.

You can earn up to five GED badges — one for each subject you score ‘College Ready’ or College Ready + Credit’ and one for earning your GED credential after passing all four subjects.
