GED Testing Sites
The staff assists students with finding the most economical place(s) to take the GED Exam. We assist the student with registering for the test and provide an introductory letter to take to the testing site.
The college campus setting allows the students to walk the halls with other students who are in college. Having to walk through the door to attend classes reduces the fear of what a college setting is like.
