To enroll in classes, students are required to attend an orientation where registration forms and placement testing are completed.

For individuals who need alternative scheduling or those who want additional study time at home, a distance education program is available that offers online lessons.

GED testing is available the first Tuesday and Wednesday of each month. Before testing, online applications are required along with a $40 fee. The next GED test is May 7-8.
