Why Choose a Diploma Over a GED?

Your high school diploma is preferred by employers over a GED®.

There are many benefits to earning a diploma rather than a GED. Some of these advantages include:

  • Students who have a high school diploma make more money on average than students with a GED.
  • Programs offering diplomas, unlike GEDs, provide resources such as online exams, elective subjects, and regional accreditation.
  • Employers prefer applicants with a high school diploma over applicants with a GED.
  • Only 5% of students with a GED go on to earn a Bachelor's degree, while 33% of students with a high school diploma earn a Bachelor's degree. (TheBestSchools.org April 13, 2016)
