Anyone wishing to take the GED exam in the state of Maryland must be at least 18-years old - UNLESS they meet an exception to the compulsary school age law. Legally homeschooling Maryland teenagers qualify to take the GED as young as age 16.

In order to sign up to take the GED, a family must first submit an official Maryland GED Homeschool Verification Form that has been signed and stamped by their local county homeschool liaison. Once the form has been accepted by the Maryland GED office, you can register online to take the test.

If your homeschooler takes and passes all 4 tests that make up the GED, they will receive a state-issued diploma. A GED diploma looks exactly like a diploma that public school students receive EXCEPT it will not have a school name printed on it. The absences of an official school name is the only indicator that separates a GED-earned diploma from diplomas earned through conventional school attendance.
