Order GED transcript, diploma, certificate

This page is for individuals who took the GED test and want to order their GED transcript, diploma, or certificate. To order another individual's transcript, go to the Third party ordering page.

Important information

  • You can send your document(s) to any destination: to a college, an employer, or yourself, for example.
  • If you send your transcript to a school in the Parchment network, you may only get the option to send it electronically (as opposed to by mail). This is because some schools do not want to receive paper transcripts. This will be made clear during the ordering process.
  • The cost for a GED transcript is $15 (unless you took the GED test in Kansas, where the transcript costs $20).
  • Some states/jurisdictions only allow you to order your transcript; others may offer diplomas and certificates too.
