OCC announces changes to GED
OLNEY - Olney Central College has 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 Jan. 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 OCC Learning Skills Center Director Donita Kaare. "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."

Kaare said support is available at OCC. "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."

Interested GED test-takers can get more information by calling Melissa Sager at 618-395-7777, Ext. 2267.

The GED test is given by the Regional Office of Education the second Wednesday of every month.

Prospective test takers need to call 618-392-4631 for more information on the test. They must register for the test at least one week in advance at the ROE.

"To anyone who has already started the GED test, your future is calling. By passing the GED test, you can answer that call," said Randy Trask, president and CEO of GED Testing Service. "You owe it to yourself. Don't miss the chance to turn one small step into your next big opportunity in life."

Last year nearly 800,000 adults sat for the GED test, which is accepted by virtually all U.S. colleges and employers.

GED test takers have three semesters left to sign up for classes and prepare for the test before Jan. 2, 2014.  Registration is currently under way at OCC for spring semester 2013.
