Changes Coming to the GED Testing Program

If you are 18 or older and haven’t earned your high school diploma, you may want to consider doing so in the near future. According to Nevada Joint Union High School Adult Education Principal, Anita Bagwell, upcoming changes to the GED testing program could make it more difficult and more expensive if you wait too long.

Adult Education provides free classes to students preparing to take the General Education Development tests. But after January 1 only fee-based, online classes offered through the GED Testing Services partnership will be available. Students will have to pay for the courses and also pay for the test which currently costs 200 dollars.

Those incentives will no longer exist once the test transition takes place in January.

GED Testing Service is a joint venture of the American Council on Education and Pearson VUE.
