General Educational Development ( GED®)
Starting in 2014, there will be a new GED test. The current version of the GED test is expiring at the end of 2013, and your scores will expire too if you don't finish and pass the test by then. Finish the test now so you won't have to re-take the parts you've already passed!
Let us help you finish your GED test this year. Visit your local Peninsula College site soon.
