Adult Basic Education / GED is designed to enable those who have not completed high school to earn the GED (high school equivalency degree). Adult Basic Education also serves those needing a review of basic skills before entering other college programs.
Adult Basic Education / GED classes serve adults (16 years or older) who need to upgrade their skills in reading, writing, and math. Students are administered a placement test upon entry. Program of study is then determined individually. Instruction is offered via individual study, structured classes, learning communities, and computers. This is a tuition free program, and all instructional materials are provided by the college. The program is provided in both English and Bilingual/Spanish to meet individual student needs.
Students may pursue the GED (high school equivalency degree) or may upgrade existing skills and abilities in preparation for further study in other college programs.
A placement test is administered to all students upon entry into the program. This test is a Washington State requirement and is for placement purposes only.
