Q. What is the difference between a GED and a high school diploma?
While both the GED and the high school diploma are important, there are several differences between them; among the most significant is the fact that some colleges, institutions and organizations require a high school diploma and may not accept the GED. In addition to providing a high school diploma, COHS gives students the benefit of earning a career certificate and completing additional job preparation documents and training. The GED consists of four tests offered on a computer. Contact the Santa Clara County Office of Education to find out where the tests are offered. Visit the GED website to learn more about the tests.
