General Education Development (GED)

Important update

The Academic Upgrading GED Preparation course will no longer be offered due to the discontinuation of the GED testing service in Canada by Pearson VUE GED Testing Service.

The current Canadian version of the GED will remain available until Spring 2024.

To register for the GED, candidates must have completed registration by January 31, 2024, and schedule their GED test dates before March 31, 2024. After this date, Ontarians will not be able to schedule GED testing. Please visit the Independent Learning Centre (ILC) website for a full list of critical dates.

The ministry is currently exploring future opportunities and will provide an update when available.

Academic Upgrading at Mohawk College offers a variety of courses, starting from foundational levels up to Grade 12 equivalency. To learn more, get in touch with Academic Upgrading via email at upgrading [at] or by phone at 905-575-2029 or sign up for a virtual information session.
