FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The GED test can be taken for free in Kentucky for the next few weeks.
Kentuckians who take the high school equivalency test between Wednesday and July 31 will have their fee of $60 to $120 paid by Kentucky Adult Education.
Reece Stagnolia, vice president of Kentucky Adult Education, urged students to get started on the GED as soon as possible to avoid possibly having to start over again next year.
To earn a GED, students must pass five test segments. Kentucky Adult Education says there are 16,000 people in Kentucky who have taken parts of GED test but have not completed it.
In January, all scores will expire because a new GED test is being implemented.
