New York State High School Equivalency Testing Program; General Information and Testing Schedule, September 1, 1969-August 31, 1970.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Higher and Professional Educational Testing.
The New York State High School Equivalency Testing Program is for adult residents of the state who have not completed their high school education in the regular manner. An adult who obtains satisfactory scores on the High School Level tests of General Educational Development (GED) Tests is eligible to receive a New York State high school equivalency diploma. This diploma is the legal equivalent of one issued by a local high school and meets the minimum requirements for entrance into some colleges in New York State. However, since admission requirements vary for individual colleges, applicants should consult admissions officers concerning specific admission requirements. This program in no way replaces the regularly established procedures in the granting of local high school or Regents high school diplomas. GED tests and scores are restricted to the High School Equivalency Testing Program. Local school authorities may not issue diplomas or grant credits on GED scores. (The document includes amendments effective April 1970, official testing centers and schedules, and the application form.) (Author/LY)
