With a price hike looming, the state is offering its GED test for free for the next 10 weeks.
Kentucky Adult Education will waive the $60 fee for Kentuckians who take the high school equivalency test before July 31.
Starting Jan. 1, 2014, test fees will jump to $120.
The GED will also be retooled to comply with the Kentucky Department of Education’s Common Core Standards.
The tougher educational guidelines were passed as legislation in 2009 and implemented in the 2011-12 school year.
