Kentucky Adult Education (KYAE) has announced that beginning July 7, 2014, eligible adults may take each module of the GED test at the reduced rate of $10, as a result of $20 vouchers being provided to eligible individuals.
With the use of these limited-time vouchers, the full GED test consisting of four modules will cost only $40 instead of the regular $120.
“We are really excited for the opportunity for eligible adults to take each GED test module for just $10,” said Penny Qualls, Director for the Boyd County Adult Education Program located at ACTC’s College Drive Campus. “We encourage everyone to spread the word about this promotion. It will only last as long as vouchers are available from KYAE, so people need to come in as soon as possible.”
The current version of the GED test was launched by the GED Testing Service in January 2014. The test, which is computer based, consists of four modules: Reasoning through Language Arts, Mathematical Reasoning, Science and Social Studies. This test allows for individual content modules to be taken one at a time.
According to Qualls, approximately 4000 adult residents of Boyd County lack high school credentials. “We know that passing the GED test opens doors to the future by helping adults prepare for college and job training and to get better jobs,” she said. “We want as many of our eligible residents to take advantage of the opportunity as possible.”
The Adult Education Center offers free classes to help adults earn their GED diploma. For information about classes or obtaining the GED vouchers, call 606-326-2437 or 606-326-2457, email Penny.Qualls@kctcs.edu or click on Facebook.com/ACTCAdult Learning Center.
