Need a GED? Testing in Kentucky is free through June 30, 2011

The Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education just announced that the GED test cost of $55 will be waived in Kentucky until June 30, 2011.

The General Educational Development Certificate (what GED really stands for) offers a second chance for thousands of Kentuckians who dropped out of high school before getting a diploma. While the GED currently does not really represent the same level of education as a full high school diploma, the GED does provide a tremendously valuable entry way to higher education programs, and employers often do give GED holders preference in hiring over high school dropouts, as well.

Details on this cost-saving deal for those who need a GED are in the council’s news release.
