West Virginia has replaced the GED with a high school diploma equivalency exam provided by CTB/McGraw Hill.
The Charleston Gazette reports that the state will continue to offer the test for free.
State officials began looking for another provider after a new electronic GED was announced. The electronic GED exam will cost $120, compared to the existing test's $50 fee.
The base price of CTB/McGraw Hill's exam is $52. The company says it will offer both paper-and-pencil and online versions of the exam.
