Educational Effects


While a GED can open up more educational opportunities, statistically speaking, those with a GED are less likely to attend college at all, much less graduate. The U.S. Census Bureau reports that less than half of GED certificate recipients eventually go on to college, compared to 73 percent of high school graduates. In addition, only 5 percent of those with a GED earned at least a bachelor’s degree, compared to 33 percent of those with a diploma.
