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. Visit the library catalog to find GED preparation books.
