gailfriend asks:

How can a GED not be state credited?? Need Help.

I have a friend who got his GED in 2005. He joined the Military and ended his service in 2010. When he went to apply for college a few months ago he found out that the GED that he was let into the military was not state credited.
He has contacted the military, VA. and even the Senator of our state. They have all told him he needs to take his GED again.
Is this right?? How can his GED not be state credited? It was good enough for him to serve our country.  Any ideas on how I can help him?? Thanks.

What the Expert Says:

This issue is an interesting one and very difficult to answer. The key question is whether or not your friend passed the GED. If not he won't be admitted to a college. However he can atrtend a Community College, complete his GED and take courses appropriate for his academic level at the college.

Bottom line- explore other opportunities to get further education. There are lots of options to consider, including the Community College system in your community.
