FREE GED TESTING ACT NOW!
Madisonville Community College (MCC) is excited to announce that the GED test will
be free to Kentucky residents until July 31, 2013. Those testing during this timeframe
will have the usual test fee of $60 waived courtesy of the Kentucky Adult Education,
a unit of the Council on Postsecondary Education. 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.
Cris Crowley, MCC s Director of Adult Education, strongly encourages anyone interested
in obtaining his/her GED certification to take advantage of this opportunity to test
for free. In addition to free GED testing, there are also free GED classes to prepare
individuals for successful testing. MCC s ACE2 program offers adult learner services
at multiple locations in Hopkins and Muhlenberg counties. These locations include:
ACE2, 100 School Avenue, Madisonville
Parkway Plaza Mall (between Hibbett Sporting Goods and Maurice s), Madisonville
Belmont Housing Authority Family Achievement Center, Dawson Springs
White Plains Senior Citizens Center
St. Charles Fire Department
Muhlenberg County Career Advancement Center
Crowley also wants all current and future GED students to be aware of upcoming changes.
The current GED test version (2002 series) will expire on December 31, 2013 and will
be replaced with the new computer-based 2014 GED test. The fee for the 2014 GED
test is set at $120. Individuals who have taken the 2002 Series GED test but have
not passed all five parts have until December 18 to complete the test before their
scores are expired.
