Barton Community College’s Center for Adult Education will soon begin another nine-week GED Preparation Class. However, orientation sessions are required before starting the class. Students must attend all orientation sessions in-person, which will be held on August 17, 19 and 24. Students have the option of a 1-4 p.m. or 6-9 p.m. time slot.
Actual GED classes will start on August 26 and attendance is required to complete the orientation process. Classes will be held every Tuesday and Thursday. Students will meet at the same time slot they chose for orientation.
Students will complete the required testing, learn how to navigate their GED.com account and learn about WorkReady! Students will also meet one-on-one with their instructor to discuss goals, expectations, attendance requirements and workload.
Those interested in taking the GED exam without any preparation instruction can do so right away but are urged to receive advising before moving forward.
Minors must bring a parent or legal guardian to enroll. A completed Compulsory Attendance Waiver is required for any student 16 or 17 years of age, prior to starting classes. The form can be furnished by the last school the student attended. If students are unable to obtain a form, they can contact the Adult Education office and a form can be sent out.
