September 22 – October 3, students who visit an Owens Community College Testing Center, at either the Toledo or Findlay-area campuses, can take the GED practice test for free through the GED Testing Service’s “See for Free” program. The practice test will help adult learners see if they are ready for the real GED test, and gives them a free personalized study plan based on their results. The “See for Free” program is held in conjunction with National Adult Education & Family Literacy Week hosted by the National Coalition for Literacy. Please contact 567-661-2253.
