Press Release

Posted: October 9, 2012


GED testing centers in Lorain County encourage adults to finish and pass before test deadlines

The Lorain County Community College GED Testing Center announced that the current version of the GED test will expire at the end of 2013. The current version, known as the 2002 Series GED test, will be replaced with the new 2014 GED test on January 2, 2014.
Those who have taken the 2002 Series GED test, but 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 credential.
“The GED test opens doors to college, better jobs, the respect adults deserve, and the satisfaction of earning a high school credential,” said Rochelle Lappis, chief examiner for Lorain County. “So we want to be sure that 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 in Lorain County,” said Mary Murphy, director, Workforce Institute of Lorain County. “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.”
“If you need help preparing for the GED test, you can take GED classes for free. The Lorain County Community College Adult Basic and Literacy Education (ABLE) Consortium offers classes to adults free of charge, and are available in both day and evening sessions,” added Murphy, who is also coordinator of the Lorain County ABLE Consortium.
