GEDŽ Ready Testing Fee Waiver
Northeast Alabama Community College is
pleased to announce that funding has been received from the
Alabama Department of Postsecondary Education that will allow
qualifying individuals to save up to $100.00 of the total GEDŽ
test fee of $120.00. A full waiver of the $24.00 GEDŽ Ready test
fee is also available for qualifying individuals. The GEDŽ Ready
test is the new name for the shorter length GEDŽ practice test.
The GEDŽ test now consists of four parts: Reasoning through
Language Arts, Mathematical Reasoning, Science, and Social
Studies. Each part of the GEDŽ test may now be taken
independently. The test fee for each part of the GEDŽ is $30.00
or $120.00 for all four parts. The test fee waiver is $25.00 per
test for qualifying individuals or up to $100.00 for all four
parts. The qualifying test-taker would then be responsible for
paying only $5.00 per test part or $20.00 for all four parts.
The GEDŽ Ready test also contains the same four parts as the GEDŽ
test and each part may be taken independently. The test fee for
each part of the GEDŽ Ready test is $6.00. The test fee waiver
for qualifying individuals is $6.00 per test part or $24.00 for
all four parts.
To be eligible for the fee waivers, a
student must first be enrolled in a state-approved GEDŽ
Preparation class and have attended at least 15 hours of
class time. NACC offers state-approved free GEDŽ classes
throughout DeKalb, Jackson, and Marshall Counties.
To be eligible for the GEDŽ Ready test
fee waiver, a student must test at the 9th grade level or
above on the A level of the Test of Adult Basic Education
To be eligible for a GEDŽ test fee
waiver for one of the four parts of the GEDŽ test, a student
must make a score of 150 or better on that same part of the
GEDŽ Ready test. To be eligible for a test fee waiver for
all four parts of the GEDŽ test, a student must score 150 or
