Tuition Waivers and Scholarships

ABSE/GED classes are noncredit, offered at low-cost or no cost to students. Students enrolled only in ABSE classes do not qualify for financial aid.

We do have limited scholarships available to students who could not otherwise afford to take the GED exams.

After you earn your GED you may qualify for help in paying for your first college classes. Find out more about tuition waivers and scholarships for a great start.

Student Fees: ABSE/GED students enrolled at the Main Campus and Mary Spilde Downtown Center will be charged the current LCC transportation fee of $27. This will allow students at these two locations to obtain a LTD Bus Pass for no additional charge. All other ABSE/GED sites will remain free of charge and students are not eligible for the bus pass through Lane Community College.
