How to Get Your GED in Utah

Who Is Eligible?

  • Formal withdrawal from high school
  • Completion of the Adult Education Program and/or GED Testing Application form

Those living in Utah must take the GED test online. The online test can happen at your home, your office, or an official GED test center.

Take Time to Prepare

It’s recommended (but not required) to take preparatory classes, which are often available free of charge. Reaching the “likely to pass” status on the GED ReadyⓇ test shows you’re ready for the real deal. Prepare well for two to three months, and you should pass the exam.

After this impressive achievement, you will receive a GED certificate from the state of Utah. The certificate signifies you have achieved the same level of knowledge as someone who graduated from a public high school in the state.
