Online Colleges: High School Diploma & GED Programs

Created by: MSG Randall High, U.S. Army (ret)

A high school diploma or GED can make a huge difference to earning potential and job security. Find out how military friendly high school diploma programs can pave the way to a much greater range of career paths, higher salaries, and employment opportunities.

Many career options can be barred to those who have not earned a high school diploma. For anyone without a high school diploma, gaining a General Educational Development (GED) certificate is a wise career move. A GED can open the doors to a whole range of occupations for military personnel who are ready to move on to a new career, or for members of their family who want a career with better employment and salary prospects. Military friendly high school diploma programs can help them gain the education they need.

Benefits of military friendly high school diploma programs

High school diploma programs can make a significant difference to future earnings and job security. Statistics from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) show that the more formal education people have, the lower their rate of unemployment and the higher their average earnings are. In 2009, the unemployment rate for those without a high school diploma was 14.6 percent, compared to an average of 7.9 percent; median weekly earnings for those without a high school diploma were $454, compared to an average of $626 for those with a high school degree. Active duty military personnel, veterans, and their families can access a range of military education benefit programs to help them gain their high school diploma, or GED, and unlock their career potential.
