Hello BigMak5,

For information on GED test prep in New York visit the New York State Department of Education official NY GED prep site. The GED program is administered by county in New York, so you need to select the county where you live and contact that office for assistance on the GED program in your area.

Be careful out there.

There are a lot of degree mills and for-profit GED services that market online. You cannot take the GED online from any legitimate source.

Get advice from your state department of education before enrolling in any GED prep services program.

Alternatively, call Call (800) 62-MY-GED for a referral to an approved real local GED preparation program or testing site.

For more consumer information you can trust on the GED visit the American Council on Education's official site on the GED and read the consumer warnings about GET degree mills and scams.

All the Best Vicky

It would be unusual to apply to earn a college degree without first having a GED or high school diploma in the USA. FYI: 98% of all colleges accept the GED rather than a high school diploma for admissions.

There are two real online colleges that may admit you without a GED or high school diploma: Excelsior College Distance Learning of New York, the adult alternative college of NY, also MAY admit SOME applicants who do not hold a high school diploma or GED.

Charter Oak State College of CT, for example, is a special college for adult learners and they do NOT require applicants to hold any high school credential. The Charter Oak distance learning programs says: "Admission is open to any person 16 years or older, regardless of level of formal education, who has earned nine acceptable college-level credits." Many Charter Oak students enter with significant career experience, military certifications and corporate training and / or passing scores on CLEP exams. In both cases these colleges specialize in working with older students who have advanced learning in their career or specialty areas.

Be careful! Internet colleges who advertise "online degrees with no GED or high school" are usually degree mill scams; and there are dozens of these that advertise heavily using this come on.

Try Excelsior or Charter Oak as both are real regionally accredited distance learning colleges.

Good Luck

Vicky

Hello BigMak5,

This would be a great program if you meet the requirements -- which include passing basic assessment test in math and English -- and can attend the necessary orientation and meetings at Rockland Community College.

Rockland is a part of the state university system of New York and it would a great advantage if you could take the 24 credits and then be eligible for the GED while using the same credits / courses as a foundation for your associates degree. Also, very affordable compared to other options if you are in New York and eligible.

I would ask admissions how much time will be required on campus. I am not sure that this can be down through elearning or that all the courses for this special program can be done this way.

Thanks for helping me get educated by posting this program. It's a great resource for others in new York to know about.

GED tests are a group of five tests which (when passed) certifies that the taker has American or Canadian high school-level academic skills. To pass the GED Tests and earn a GED credential, test takers must score higher than 40 percent of graduating high school seniors nationwide.

It's more or less the equivalency of a high school diploma.

Hi Ria,

You will have to go to a campus to take the FREE GED prep courses offered at your local community college. Below is a page from the Suffolk Community College GED site. They offer a free program, which welcomes international students through their ACCESS Center. You can use some online or web prep tools BUT you will need to contact Suffolk to get the full program requirements. Again, this GED program is FREE.

Suffolk also offers a variety of courses in reading, English, and math which are designed to help you improve your academic skills and prepare you for success in college-level courses.

Suffolk offers a GED/Literacy Prep for College program through the SCCC ACCESS Center. This free program prepares you for the General Educational Development (GED) test by providing self-paced instruction customized to your skill level.

We will assist you to follow the right path based on standardized test scores from the college's placement tests.
