Adult learners will soon have to pay a lot more for a General Educational Development diploma soon.

The price for the battery of tests will more than double this summer as the GED testing program is revamped and computerize testing.

Students who currently pay $95 for all parts of the test could pay as much as $250 starting July 1st.

"If they really want their GED like I do it shouldn't matter what the price is, it should be the effort they're willing to put in," said Demariquise Mennette, Albany Tech Student.

The national administrator of the GED tests is moving to computer testing instead of paper ones.

Test takers could save about $75 dollars by taking all five parts of the GED test together.
