GED® Preparation classes are provided through Central Community College’s Adult Education program. Instruction is aligned with the GED® 2014 test. Four individual tests must be passed to receive a GED® diploma:
Reasoning through Language Arts
These tests are computer based. All testing must be completed at an official testing center. The four official GED® tests cost $30 per test.
Adult students interested in enrolling in GED® classes must pre-register prior to starting class. Students can ask for registration information during any GED® class held at the Columbus Family Resource Center.
