The workforce has changed, and so has the General Educational Development test.

The GED test is now known as the high school equivalency test. The handwritten test has been replaced by a computer-based high school equivalency test.

Scores on GED tests taken before December 31, 2013 have expired. Nash Community College wants to help students better prepare to face the future by completing the high school equivalency test.

Earning a high school equivalency will show that students are prepared for the next step whether that is a better job with higher earning potential or a college education.

High school equivalency recipients are likely to make $115 more each week than individuals without a high school education.

What this means is having a high school degree can translate to increased earnings throughout your career.

Students can begin working today toward a higher earning potential.

Nash Community College staff will provide assistance at no cost as students prepare to take the high school equivalency test. Individuals interested in completing their GED are invited to one of the following spring orientation sessions:

April 7, 8, and 9: 1 to 5 p.m. and 5 to 9 p.m.

April 4, 11: 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Call 252-451-8246 to schedule an orientation session and learn more about this program.
