Most individuals earn their North Dakota GED High School Diploma by taking the required tests at a North Dakota test center. However, there are some people who test outside the state, but prefer a diploma from the State of North Dakota.
Persons Testing Outside of North Dakota
- The North Dakota Department of Public Instruction may accept GED test scores obtained by a candidate who takes the test outside the state. The candidate must meet the age and minimum score requirement in effect in North Dakota at the time of application.
GED Test Scores Obtained in Another State
- The tests must be taken at an official test center. An original certified score report (transcript) must be sent directly to the Department of Public Instruction by the Official GED Test Center.
GED Test Scores Obtained in Military Service
- A certified transcript must be forwarded directly to the Department of Public Instruction by DANTES, the GED Testing Service or an official state testing agency.
Test Scores Obtained through the GED Testing Service
- American civilians or foreign nationals who are stationed overseas at military bases and test through the National GED. Testing Service may use those scores to obtain a North Dakota Diploma if they meet all North Dakota requirements. The candidate must request the National GED Service to forward an official transcript and application to the Department of Public Instruction.
