Current Version of the GED® to expire 2013

sccnewsicon(January 29, 2013) Stanly Community College (SCC) has announced that the current version of the GED® test will expire at the end of 2013. The current version, known as the 2002 Series GED® test, will be replaced with the new 2014 GED® test on January 2, 2014.

Those who have taken the 2002 Series GED® test, but not passed all five parts, have until the end of 2013 to pass or they will need to start over again in 2014 with the new GED® test in order to receive their high school credential. GED® testing centers in North Carolina are encouraging adults to finish and pass this test before the deadline.

The GED® testing fee for paper-based tests is $35 per student for a complete battery of tests including any re-testing. This charge will be in effect for the duration of NC Community Colleges offering paper-based testing.

“We currently offer the GED® Practice Tests and GED® Official Tests once a month at Stanly Community College, both at the Albemarle campus and at the Crutchfield Education Center in Locust,” said Andrea Steed.  “As the deadline nears for the 2002 Series GED® test, I plan to expand the testing schedule to accommodate more testers.”

Obtaining your GED® opens doors to college, better jobs, the respect adults deserve, and the satisfaction of earning a high school credential. GED® test-takers must act now to finish and pass before the current test expires.
