GED Admission Requirements

If you have earned a GED diploma, you will be considered based on the following criteria:

  • A minimum overall score of 2500 or higher, and a minimum standard score of at least 500 on each of the five GED subtests
  • An official SAT or ACT score (including SAT essay or ACT writing)
  • A personal statement and/or essay is encouraged
  • A high school transcript with secondary coursework completed before earning the GED may be requested
  • Other admission factors may also be considered, if applicable

NOTE: Simply meeting minimum GED requirements does not guarantee admission. Many GED recipients are encouraged to earn the Associate in Arts degree at a public Florida community college prior to transferring to USF.
