(WTVM) - Past and future graduates of Georgia high school students who didn't receive their diplomas may be able to get them now.
Governor Nathan Deal signed a new law Thursday by that eliminates the Georgia High School Graduation Test, as well as the state high school writing test and basic skills test.
Former students who graduated and met all credit requirements except passage of the Georgia High School Graduation Test are now eligible to get their diplomas.
The law is retroactive, meaning any student who enrolled in the 9th grade before July 1, 1981 is eligible.
