As of July 1st, 2022 the Illinois Constitution test is no longer waived, and must be completed to receive your documents. If you previously passed the Constitution Test or completed all portions of your GED exams during the waiver, this step does not apply. The Constitution exam is now taken online and can be found here. Please save a copy of your completion certificate for your records.

If you need your certificate and/or transcript mailed to you, please email Jennifer Ochsner with your full date of birth, name at time of testing, approximate year of testing and the last 4 of your social security number. Once received a member of our staff will reach out with further instructions. Please note we cannot email any documents to either you or directly to a university.
