COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) — The Kentucky Adult Education Department is offering free GED® testing to Kentuckians at adult education centers statewide through July 31.
The GED® test provides adults who did not finish high school with the opportunity to certify their attainment of high school-level academic knowledge and skills. Normally, the entire GED® test taken the conventional way on paper costs the test taker $60; the fee for taking the entire computer-based GED® test is $120, a cost set by the national GED Testing Service. Free GED® classes are available through local adult education programs in all 120 Kentucky counties.
“It’s particularly important for those without a high school diploma to pass all five parts of the GED® test this year, because the GED® test will change January 1, 2014,” said Peg Russell, director of adult education for Gateway Community and Technical College, which manages adult education centers in Boone, Grant, Kenton, and Owen counties.
