General Education Development

The General Education Development (GED®) learning path helps people earn their high school equivalency diploma. Getting a GED allows you the opportunity for higher wages and a more sustainable career. According to South Dakota Labor and Regulation, someone with a high school equivalency diploma will earn almost $12,000 more annually than someone without.

The SDDLR recognizes the importance of this educational milestone and provides the General Educational Development (GED®) program to help those who have not completed a regular high school program leading to a diploma.
