MCC Offers Free GED Testing

knowhow 300MADISONVILLE, Ky. (5/20/13) – Madisonville Community College (MCC) is excited to announce that the GED® test will be free to Kentucky residents until July 31, 2013. Those testing during this timeframe will have the usual test fee of $60 waived courtesy of the Kentucky Adult Education, a unit of the Council on Postsecondary Education. The GED® test provides adults who did not finish high school with the opportunity to certify their attainment of high school-level academic knowledge and skills.
 
Cris Crowley, MCC’s Director of Adult Education, strongly encourages anyone interested in obtaining his/her GED® certification to take advantage of this opportunity to test for free. In addition to free GED® testing, there are also free GED® classes to prepare individuals for successful testing. MCC’s ACE2 program offers adult learner services at multiple locations in Hopkins and Muhlenberg counties. These locations include:
 
• ACE2, 100 School Avenue, Madisonville
• Parkway Plaza Mall (between Hibbett Sporting Goods and Maurice’s), Madisonville
• Belmont Housing Authority Family Achievement Center, Dawson Springs
• White Plains Senior Citizens Center
• St. Charles Fire Department
• Muhlenberg County Career Advancement Center
 
Crowley also wants all current and future GED® students to be aware of upcoming changes. The current GED® test version (2002 series) will expire on December 31, 2013 and will be replaced with the new computer-based 2014 GED® test. The fee for the 2014 GED® test is set at $120. Individuals who have taken the 2002 Series GED® test but have not passed all five parts have until December 18 to complete the test before their scores are expired.
 
To learn more about enrolling in ACE2 or the GED®, contact Cris Crowley at (270) 824-1818 or the Muhlenberg County Adult Education Program at (270) 338-2257. To find other Kentucky adult education centers, call (800) 928-7323 or visit www.KnowHow2GoKy.org and click on “Adults.”
