The cost of taking the GED test will remain the same for now while the company that administers the test resolves technical issues with giving the test by computer.
The cost will stay at $95 at least until early 2012, or however long it takes GED Testing Services to begin the computer-based tests.
The state board that oversees the Technical College System of Georgia and its Office of Adult Education said it won't reconsider a price increase until next year. The board had announced in April that it was going to more than double the current fee.
About 1.3 million adult Georgians don't have a high school or GED diploma, according the technical college system. In 2010, almost 20,000 obtained GED diplomas.
