Tusculum College has been approved as an official GED Testing Center, which will provide a much-needed service on a regular basis to Greene County and the surrounding communities.
A ribbon cutting for the new testing center will be held at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, January 19, on the main floor (first floor) of Virginia Hall on the Tusculum College campus. Tusculum College students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends are invited to attend. The first GED exam for the new site at the College will be administered later that afternoon.
The ollege received notification in December that it had been approved as a testing center to administer the GED (General Educational Development) tests that provide adults who did not complete a formal high school program the opportunity to certify their attainment of high school-level knowledge and skills.
Tusculum College will become the only testing center providing GED testing on a regular basis in Greene County. The Tusculum College testing center may also serve individuals from up to 10 surrounding counties, as there is just one testing site in the Tri-Cities and one in Morristown.
