If you have a question, please contact the current GED Administrator for the state or jurisdiction where the GED test was administered.

Duplicate Certificate

The BOP does not issue GED certificates, they are issued by states and territories.

Many states will not issue duplicate GED certificates if they are destroyed or lost after initial issuance. You will need to contact the current GED Administrator for the state that issued your original certificate to see if they will issue you a duplicate. If you tested without a SSN, you should contact the GED Administrator for the State of Maine.
