Those hoping to earn their GED high school equivalency certificates need to act fast. Ann Arbor Public Schools Adult Education program wants everyone to know the current GED test expires at the end of this year.

Please arrive on time and bring your driver’s license or state ID. Classes are free, and adults 18 and older are eligible whether or not they reside in the school district.

The new GED test takes effect January 2014. This means current GED students must pass all of their tests by December 2013. After that, everyone will need to start over again with the new series of tests. The new test will be online only. Adults wanting to earn their GEDs should enroll now, because passing the test demands a substantial time commitment. Starting class this semester gives students time to review materials they already know, and to learn new skills for the test. The Adult Ed program assesses students, provides many opportunities to take classes, offers practice tests and gives students one-on-one attention. For more information call (734) 997-1250.
