No, the military will not "give" you a GED, you must earn it. However if you have been accepted into military service, depending on the requirements at time of enlistment, you may have to complete the GED requirements within your first year on active duty service or within you first term of enlistment. In order to qualify for MGIB benefits, you must possess at minimum a GED.

No. You're required to have your GED or diploma before you report in to MEPS to be shipped out.

To join the Army, you generally need a high school diploma or equivalent, such as a GED. However, in some cases, the Army may accept individuals without a high school diploma or GED if they meet certain qualifications. It is best to contact a recruiter to discuss your specific situation and eligibility requirements.

If you can't pass high school or get your GED can you still enrol in the army?

You need at least a GED to get into the army. I know this from personal experience. However the army is willing to help you get your GED and will actually pay for any fees it may cost (some places it costs to get it others do not). So if its financial issues that is stopping you then this will help you. If you do not feel confident enough that you will pass the GED test go ahead and try anyways. I felt the same way and I only had a 8th grade education due to bad choices in my life. I ended up acing the test scoring much higher than the national average scores. If I can do it you can too just believe in yourself.
