IMPORTANT: Don't let your GED test scores expire!
The current GED Test will be replaced with new version in December 2013. If you have already started taking tests, you must complete your GED Certificate by the end of 2013. If you do not complete your GED Certificate by the end of 2013, you will lose all of your scores completely and will have to start over on the new 2014 Series.
The new 2014 GED Test will be offered via computer only at official GED Testing Centers. Portland area testing centers are currently transitioning to Computer Based Testing (CBT), but continue to offer the current 2002 version.For additional information visit www.GEDtestingservice.com or contact your local testing center.
GED Test Scholarship Fund
The Portland Literacy Council started the GED Test Scholarship Fund in 2003. The fund assists students by paying a portion (or sometimes all) of the mandatory fees associated with taking the GED exams. GED scholarships are awarded as financial vouchers. The student receives the value of the award (as a reduction of fees) at the time that they register for the GED tests.
