EvCC Urges GED Students to Finish Tests Now
Current GED Test to be Replaced in 2014
EVERETT, Wash. – Students who have started but not completed their GED tests are encouraged to finish before the test changes in January 2014 – or they’ll have to start over.
The current version of the GED test will be replaced nationwide by GED Testing Services in January 2014. The GED test includes five parts that can be taken separately, but all must be passed to receive a high school credential.
Students who have passed some but not all parts of their GED tests must complete the rest by the end of the year or they’ll have to start over with the new test. They’ll also have to pay a testing fee again.
“For students who have started their GED tests, there’s still time to finish, and Everett Community College can help,” said Katie Jensen, EvCC Dean of Basic and Developmental Education.
EvCC’s summer quarter GED classes start July 1. Registration for GED classes begins May 28. Fall quarter classes start Sept. 23, with registration for GED classes beginning Sept. 3. To register, call 425-388-9291.
EvCC’s Basic and Developmental Education office can also answer questions about GED testing and advise students about the best options to finish their GEDs.
The new 2014 GED test will be offered only on computer. All GED tests are only available in official testing centers, not online.
