Constitution requirements

In Illinois, GED test takers who did not pass the Constitution test in high school must also pass a Constitution exam [Illinois Compiled Statutes - School Code (105 ILCS 5/27-3)]. 

This study guide (English) (Spanish), is written for GED test takers in Illinois who must take the Constitution exam. 

If you passed the Constitution test while in high school, send your high school transcripts to your local Regional Office of Education.

Contact your local Regional Office of Education for more information. For Kankakee and Iroquois counties:
