Graduation

A high school diploma or the equivalent can make an important difference in your income — and in your life. Learn about the General Educational Development (GED) Diploma and how you can pursue it.

Individuals who have not received a high school diploma or its equivalent have a low-cost opportunity to earn one. When you earn a diploma or GED, you have also earned the opportunity to find a stable job with a good income. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, a person with a high school diploma or GED will earn $7,658 more annually than a non-high school graduate.
