Support testing fees for high school equivalency, GED

Savannah Technical College offers options for adults to earn a high school equivalency (HSE) credential. The options have free preparation courses for U.S. Citizens, but the credentials have fees associated with exams. The GED is made up of four tests with a cost of $40 per exam.

Savannah Tech’s HSE/GED testing scholarship is a much-needed resource to provide support for students who seek to earn their high school equivalency. “These students, who work tirelessly to obtain this credential, do so amidst severe financial hardships,” said STC Dean of Adult Education Thomas Bullock. “The scholarship allows students to reach many goals, both personally and toward their continuing educational and career pursuits.”

HSE/GED exam scholarships are awarded based on a student’s pre-test score, which indicates their likelihood of passing the exam. 

YES! I want to fund HSE/GED testing:

Scholarship funds may be used for tuition, fees, books, and pre-approved academic-related supplies purchased at the Savannah Technical College Campus Shop only. Scholarship funds will not be distributed directly to the student. This means students receiving refunds from the College will not be eligible for scholarships. Transient students are not eligible to receive STC Foundation scholarships.

Privately-funded scholarships are awarded based on criteria established by each of the donors. Any restrictions (age, race, gender, program of study, required hours, GPA, etc.) are included by specific request of the donor and are explicitly tied to the funds received for awards.
