GED Information and Transcript Requests

Promoting quality education, leadership, and support for the Districts of Boone and Winnebago Counties

There are many educationally mature persons who, for one reason or another, withdrew from school or were unable to complete formal high school graduation requirements, and as a result, have not been able to establish satisfactorily or document their level of educational achievement.

The GED program provides applicants the opportunity to secure an evaluation of the educational maturity and/or competence, which may prove valuable in securing employment, job promotion, admission to college, or for reasons of personal satisfaction.

The ROE administers the GED test and issues the Illinois State High School Equivalency Certificate. Applicants must be 17 years of age or older, a resident of the state, and show proof of eligibility. For more information on GED testing click here or contact Stephanie Putzstuck at (815) 636-3060
