More people signing up for GED classes

Posted:
HANNIBAL, Mo. (WGEM) -

GED classes are quickly filling up in Northeast Missouri as more people try to get a high school diploma before requirements change next year.  Hannibal Career and Technology Director Roger McGregor said a lot of that has to do with the GED test going to an electronic format in 2014.
He said more people signed up for Prep classes in the last month.

"That's more than what we've normally received. I'm going to say in that time period we've normally received 5 to 10, so we're probably about 3 times where we usually are," he said. 

The cost of the GED is also increasing by $100 next year, and there are still concerns there won't be a testing center in Hannibal once the test goes online.
