Vouchers to Take the GED in Ohio

The GED (General Educational Development) test, the high school equivalency examination, went to a computer form in 2014,  and had a huge increase in cost ($120).  People who need the GED to help them in the job hunt rushed to complete their tests last year, and some states looked for alternatives to the GED. 

Here in Ohio, there is some financial help for people who are taking the GED for the first time.  The state is offering vouchers worth up to $80 if the test-taker works with a Career-Technical Planning District center in the state on career planning.  You can find the nearest center to you from this county-by-county directory.Then, follow these instructions to get the voucher. 

To find out information about GED and adult education in your area, contact your state's office in charge of adult education.
