Kentucky offers big discount on GED test

Getting a General Education Diploma in Kentucky just a lot got cheaper — for a while.

For a limited time, qualifying students can take the test for as little as $40, a savings of $80, state education officials announced Wednesday.

The test can be taken in four parts, and $20 vouchers are available for each part. The vouchers are being financed with federal Workforce Investment Act funds.

"We are pleased to offer this opportunity and are hopeful that Kentuckians will take full advantage of it," said Reecie Stagnolia, vice president for Kentucky Adult Education at the Council on Postsecondary Education.

The vouchers will be distributed while supplies last. To determine eligibility, residents should contact their local adult education centers. Contact information is available at
