The General Educational Development Test, or GED, is a high school equivalency exam. It is made up of four subject tests that, once passed, earn you the equivalent of a high school diploma.
LCCC offers GED courses to help you prepare to pass the GED exam. Classes are leveled to meet your learning needs and address the four subjects found on the GED test:
- Mathematical Reasoning
- Reasoning Through Language Arts
- Social Studies
Our classes are designed to help you improve the skills that will benefit you during the GED exam as well as in the workplace.
Classes are offered during the day and evenings. To be eligible for these courses, you should be able to speak, read, and write in English.
Please note that classes are in high demand, and there is typically a two- to three-month wait. We invite students on a first-come, first-served basis.
