DANVILLE, Ill. (WCIA) — Officials with Danville Area Community College (DACC) announced Wednesday the college will offer a discounted general education degree (GED) test for a third of the usual cost, while funds last.
A press release from DACC said a subsidy from the Illinois Community College Board has made the reduced price possible.
Normally, DACC charges $120 for a GED test. It will be only $40 for a limited time.
The college reminded people that High School Equivalency/GED test courses are always free, and they will offer several options for the fall:
