The Jefferson Skills U offices and class sites are currently closed, but our staff is still working to help you attain your educational goals through virtual instruction. If you are a current student interested in continuing your studies online or a new student who wishes to learn more about earning your GED credential or improving your English language skills, please contact Beverly Hornback at firstname.lastname@example.org or (502) 966-7627 for more information.
For a limited time, you can take the GED test free! That's a $120 savings!
Jefferson Skills U can help you every step of the way. If you are 18 years or older and have withdrawn from school, we can help you determine if you're GED-ready and provide free classes if you need to brush up on your skills before the test.
Ways to Enroll
- Call (502) 485-3400 to schedule an appointment.
- Walk in to the Student Services Center at Ahrens (546 South First Street, Room 103).
Steps to the GED Credential
- Schedule an appointment to take the Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE) Assessment (an assessment that helps staff determine if you are GED-ready or if you need to brush up on your skills before taking the GED test).
- If your TABE Assessment determines that you are GED-ready, staff will schedule you for the GED Ready test (a pre-GED test required by the Commonwealth of Kentucky). The cost of the GED Ready test is covered by vouchers provided by Kentucky Skills U.
- When you pass a section of the GED Ready test, staff will help you schedule your official GED test appointment in that subject. For a limited time, there is no cost to take the test.
- If your TABE Assessment determines that you need some brush-up prior to taking the GED test, you will be scheduled for a class that best suits your needs.
- Retesting is done periodically to determine academic progress and GED readiness.
