Gateway Partners with Adult Education to Offer Free GED Tests

Gateway Community and Technical College will offer free GED tests, which usually cost $60, through June 30 or until funds are expended. The tests are sponsored by Kentucky Adult Education, a unit of the Council on Postsecondary Education, and the Department of Workforce Investment, an agency of the Education and Workforce Development Cabinet, using federal Workforce Investment Act (WIA) incentive funding.

The free tests will be offered at Gateways Boone Campus, 500 Technology Way, Florence; Edgewood Campus, 790 Thomas More Parkway, Edgewood; and the Urban Center, 525 Scott Boulevard, Covington.

GED tests provide adults who did not finish high school an opportunity to demonstrate that they have attained high school-level academic knowledge and skills. To take the GED Exam in Kentucky, individuals must have a Kentucky address, pass the Official GED Practice Test through an approved Kentucky Adult Education center, and be 19 years of age or be withdrawn from school at least 90 days if you are under 19 years of age. If you cannot wait 90 days, you may request a waiver from your school superintendent.

For questions or scheduling, please call 859-442-1159. Accommodated testing is available for persons with documented disabilities. More information is available online at http://gateway.kctcs.edu/Academics/Testing_Services/GED.aspx.
