What is GED, ABE and Adult Diploma?
How can I get started to my high school diploma?
If you are 19 years of age and are not currently enrolled in high school, you are eligible to take the GED® in Minnesota. If you are under 19 and have less than 10 credits to graduate, you may be eligible for the adult diploma program. These programs are no cost to students.

Adult Basic Education (ABE) is available statewide at no cost to adult learners. It is administered through the Minnesota Department of Education. Each year, more than 500 delivery sites serve approximately 75,000 adult students. About one-half of these students are enrolled in English Learner (EL) programs. Licensed teachers provide ABE instruction and are assisted by more than 3,000 trained volunteers.
The ABE curriculum umbrella includes Adult Diploma, GED, English as a Second Language (ESL or EL), Family Literacy, Basic Skills Enhancement, Workplace Literacy, and U.S. Citizenship/Civics. Programs are delivered primarily through public school districts, non-profit organizations, some technical colleges, and state and local correctional institutions.
In Minnesota, individuals who do not have a high school diploma may be able to earn a state of Minnesota GED® Diploma by passing the General Educational Development Test. The four tests in the GED battery measure academic competencies similar to many of those required of a Minnesota high school graduate.
