Kentucky Promotion Terms and Conditions


These Terms and Conditions apply to the “Kentucky Promotion”

The Commonwealth of Kentucky (“Kentucky”) is offering a GED® test subsidy to eligible Test-takers until: (1) the funding runs out; or (2) 11:59 p.m. on June 30, 2024, whichever occurs first (“Promotion Period”). The Kentucky Promotion is available to support Kentucky’s GED® Test-takers in their efforts to achieve passing scores on all four (4) GED content area tests to earn their GED high school equivalency credential. The four GED content area tests are:

Reasoning through Language Arts, Social Studies, Science and Mathematical Reasoning.

The Kentucky Promotion is administered by GED Testing Service LLC (“GEDTS”).  GEDTS will provide eligible Test-takers who are Kentucky residents and have passed the GED Ready® Official Practice test for one specific content area with a code for the value of the GED Official Test for that same content area (“Promotion Code(s)”). Test-takers may use the Promotion Code(s) to schedule up to four (4) separate tests; one for each of the four separate GED Official content area tests as well as a Promotion Code for up to 2 retests in a test center and 1 retest for the online proctored test. Effective July 1, 2024, GED testing Service’s discounted retake policy will change to 1 discounted retake per failed content area attempt. Therefore, an individual must schedule and complete the second discounted retake attempt by June 30, 2024. Test seating may be limited and if no seating is available by June 30, 2024, the test-taker’s second discounted retake expires. Test-takers are responsible for the cost to retake any GED Official content area test on which the Test-taker fails to achieve a passing score beyond the amount of retests described above.  If a Test-taker fails to appear for a scheduled testing appointment, that “no-show” event will count as an attempt of the GED Official content area tests and the Test-taker is not allowed to use a Promotion Code for that same content area test again. Eligible Test-takers desiring to use the Promotion Code(s) must do so by scheduling their test appointments before the Promotion Period ends.

Eligibility Requirements: To be eligible for the Kentucky Promotion, the Test-taker must meet Kentucky’s policy requirements for taking GED tests and have passed at least one (1) of the GED Ready® Official Practice content area tests.

GEDTS retains the right to request additional information when processing or validating the use of the Promotion Code(s) and is not responsible for late code entries. Test seating and the subsidy funding is limited and GEDTS is not responsible if there are no seats available or the subsidy funds run out prior to the end of the Promotion Period. If a Test-taker fails to meet any of the requirements of these Terms and Conditions, they will not be allowed to use the Promotion Code. The Kentucky Promotion is only authorized in connection with the Kentucky GED® test computer-based testing program.

The Kentucky Promotion is valid only during the Promotion Period and only in connection with GED® tests that are administered via computer. The Promotion Code is non-transferable and not redeemable for cash and cannot be applied to any other purpose or purchase, or combined with any other discount.

These Terms and Conditions are subject to change at any time without notice. Additional terms and conditions may apply. GEDTS and/or Kentucky reserve the right , without notice, to cancel, suspend and/or modify the Kentucky Promotion, in whole or in part, if any fraud, technical failures or any other factor beyond its reasonable control impairs the integrity or proper functioning of this promotion. GEDTS reserves the right to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the GED® test scheduling system, or otherwise acting in violation of these Terms and Conditions. Void outside Kentucky and where prohibited by law.
