Early Access to Unofficial Scores and Interpreting a HSE Transcript

After examinees have created a GED account, and scheduled and taken their exam, they can access their unofficial GED® Test scores by logging into their account on the GED Homepage.  Test scores are unofficial pending verification that all New York State Education Department’s (NYSED) regulatory requirements were met. Diplomas and transcripts are processed by the NYSED High School Equivalency (HSE) Office and mailed to the address included in the examinee’s GED Registration. The official verification of scores and the issuance of a HSE diploma and accompanying transcript, if all subtests were passed, is completed approximately 8-10 weeks after testing in complete.

Unofficial GED Test scores do not include passing scores that examine may have received from prior tests taken, including the GED Test (2002-2013) and the TASC Test™ (2014-2021), or subject credit received through passing Regents exams. For information regarding subtest credit earned from tests that were previsouly passed, or the Regents/HSE pathway, please email: hse@nysed.gov.

After processing, new GED® test results are blended with previously passed subtest from 2002, (2003 for Spanish,) to present. However, the GED® exam for reading and writing is one subtest, (Reasoning Through Language Arts - RLA), rather than two individual subtests, as was the case with both the 2002-2014 GED® test and the 2014-2021 TASC™ test. The RLA is divided into two parts, but the scores are combined so you will receive a single score.  If only reading or writing was previously credited via the 2002-2013 GED® test, 2014-2021 TASC™ test, or subtest credit approved via passing Regents exams, both sections of the RLA must be taken and passed for HSE credit. When all five subtests are passed through any combination of the pathways listed above, a diploma will be issued by the HSE Office, and mailed to the address provided at the time of scheduling. The HSE Status Report will indicate when your document is complete: https://eservices.nysed.gov/ged/logon.do. Once processed, please expect an additional few week for printing and mailing.
