For a limited time and effective immediately, eligible Kentucky adults can take each module of the GED® test at the reduced cost of $10, a savings of $20.

The offer is being made possible in Kentucky through $20 limited-time vouchers using federal Workforce Investment Act funds. Through the offer, the full GED® test is available at the reduced cost of $40, a savings of $80.

“We are pleased to offer this opportunity and are hopeful that Kentuckians will take full advantage of it,” said Reecie Stagnolia, vice president for Kentucky Adult Education, Council on Postsecondary Education.

The current version of the GED® test was launched by the GED Testing Service™ in January. The computer-based test consists of four modules: Reasoning through Language Arts, Mathematical Reasoning, Science and Social Studies. The test allows for individual content modules to be taken one at a time.

Stagnolia says that the vouchers will be distributed while supplies last.

“We encourage all Kentucky adults who need to earn a GED® credential to visit their local Kentucky Adult Education centers as soon as possible for more information. Whether you need a quick refresh in a particular subject area or additional assistance in preparing, the staffs at our local centers stand ready to help,” he said.

To determine eligibility, residents should contact their local centers available at: http://www.kyvae.org/countycontacts.aspx.
