A friend of mine got a GED online.  May I do that?
You can study for the GED online, and our program can help you get started with that. But you can not take the real GED test online. A program that offers a GED test online is probably just trying to take your money. A recent article on warns individuals to beware of any company that promises you a GED via their website after taking a few tests and paying a fee.
See this warning from ACE, the organization in charge of the official GED test.

Can I still enroll in your program if I’m 16 or 17 years old?
