    Yes, universities will consider that. You're at a disadvantage against students who had AP and Honors courses, but if your test scores are good, there's no reason why you shouldn't be able to get into a university.

    While universities try to look at the "whole" person, they are also kind of NOT allowed to discriminate between HS diploma, GED & home schooled students.  For schools that still rely on ACT/SAT scores, those scores are often a better indicator than a HS GPA.  The test for a GED is a national test (as are ACT/SAT) and may be a better indicator than a 4.0 HS GPA in a school district not known for its academic excellence.

    You read the requirement to apply on each university’s web site. 

    Many universities do accept a GED instead of a HS diploma to apply.
