Last Chance for GED Students

Bookmark and Share

Sweeping changes are coming to Tri-County Community College (TCCC) and its General Educational Development (GED) program. Beginning next year, the GED will become a computer-based test that assesses career readiness in addition to academic skills.

Students who have already taken the 2002 series GED test, but have not completed all five parts, have until December 9 to finish. After this date all progress towards completion will become obsolete.

“Now is the time for you to take or complete unfinished sections of the GED,” said TCCC Director of College and Career Readiness, Susie West. “The College will be offering free classes now until December 9 designed to help students finish their GED tests.”
