CLEVELAND (AP) - Ohioans without high school diplomas will have to pay more next year to take a test for an equivalency certificate but can receive vouchers toward that expense if they get career counseling beforehand.
The GED test is expected to cost $120 in January with the switch from a pencil-and-paper test to a computerized version.
The Plain Dealer in Cleveland reports test-takers can get $80 in vouchers toward that cost if they meet with a counselor at one of Ohio's 91 career-technical district sites. The program was allotted $4 million in the state budget.
An Ohio Department of Education spokesman says many test-takers are hoping to get better jobs, and getting counseling or résumé assistance can be helpful.
More than 19,000 Ohioans took the GED last year, with 13,000 passing.
