How to Enroll in GED® Classes
Attending a GED® Orientation is the first step in taking GED classes at Edmonds Community College.
Orientations are a total of five hours and are held over two days or evenings. Students must attend both days of orientation. Please sign up early as classes fill quickly.
During the orientation, students receive the following information:
- An overview of the GED® and high school diploma programs (Adult High School and HS 21+) at Edmonds Community College
- What to expect on the GED® test itself
- What the connection is between wages and education
- Financial and academic support available while you work toward your GED®
- Goal setting support
- An introduction to college resources
- Edmonds Community College career/educational opportunities available for GED® completers
Students also take reading and math assessments at the orientations for class placement.
Following the orientation, students meet one-on-one with an adviser to register for classes.
