High School Equivalency
An individual who has not graduated from high school or received a GED (General Equivalency Diploma) may apply to the New York State Education Department, Office of High School Equivalency Programs and GED Testing, for a GED by successfully completing twenty-four (24) credit hours of college course work and demonstrating satisfactory progress toward a degree. Six specific areas of distribution are required within the 24 credit hours. Interested parties should contact the Records Office for further information. *Please note that courses numbered below 100 (remedial), physical education, college skills or freshman seminar courses, will not be accepted toward the twenty-four credits. Forms for application to the State Education Department are available from the Records Office.
