GED test changing at end of '13
Time is running out for people who haven't finished their GEDs.

According to Regional Office of Education 12, the current version of the GED test will expire at the end of 2013. That version, known as the 2002 Series, will be replaced with the new 2014 GED test Jan. 2, 2014.

Those who have taken the 2002 Series GED test, but have 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 credentials.

"The GED test opens doors to college, better jobs, the respect adults deserve, and the satisfaction of earning a high school credential," said Regional Superintendent Monte Newlin. "So, we want to be sure everyone is aware of this deadline. GED test-takers must act now to finish and pass before the current test expires."

"Support is available, right here at Lincoln Trail College," said Rena Gower, director of LTC's Learning Skills Center. "We can help adult learners get prepared to take the parts of the GED test they still need to pass. We want you to succeed."

Lincoln Trail College has day and evening GED preparation classes starting Jan. 7. For more information, or to make an appointment for advising, call 544-8657, ext. 1134.

Registration deadline for repeat GED test-takers is Aug. 30. Registration deadline for new GED test-takers is Nov. 1, 2013.

The GED test has opened doors to better jobs and college programs for more than 18 million graduates since 1942. Last year, nearly 800,000 adults sat for the GED test, which is accepted by virtually all U.S. colleges and employers. As the creator of the official GED test, GED Testing Service has a responsibility to ensure that the program continues to be a reliable and valuable pathway to a better life for the millions of adults without a high school credential.
