Cincinnati State will host GED practice tests Sept. 22 – Oct. 3

Cincinnati State will be hosting free GED practice tests over a two-week period in late September and
early October at its Clifton campus. The “See for Free” tests are designed to let high school dropouts who
wish to earn an equivalency degree determine if they are ready to take the recently-overhauled General

Between Sept. 22 and Oct. 3, GED Testing Service will give students the chance to take the GED
Ready™ practice test for free at an adult education center. According to Bari Ewing, director of Cincinnati
State’s College Access Programs, Cincinnati State has made arrangements at the Clifton campus to host
the tests.
