GED Tests set to change in 2014



The partnership between Communities In Schools Milledgeville-Baldwin County (CISMBC) and the Milledgeville campus of CGTC has successfully offered adult education classes at the Early Learning Center, Graham Homes and Greater Wesley Chapel for adult learners unable to attend classes at the local CGTC campus. 

CISMBC established a scholarship fund in partnership with CGTC to pay for GED testing fees for Baldwin County residents who go through the GED program and obtain their diplomas. CGTC also offers a scholarship for students attaining a score of 550 or above on the GED practice test. 

“Twenty-five students received Baldwin County scholarships,” Batson said. “Seven students are now graduates, or 18 percent of those that took parts.”

Georgia residents who pass the GED tests receive a $500 HOPE voucher to help pay for some of their expenses at an eligible Georgia post-secondary institution. The HOPE grant, which is separate from the voucher, will pay for most of the state technical college tuition. To keep the HOPE grant, the student must maintain at least a 3.0 college grade point average.

For more information about the new GED Tests, or to attend Saturday’s session, call the Milledgeville campus of CGTC adult education program at (478) 445-5669.
