GED Orientation Schedule

Who:  All new students must attend an orientation over two days ~ see dates below. During orientation you will meet with the instructor and/or other instructional staff to get a sense of what to expect from ABSE classes. Returning students should check in with the front office if they have been in the program within the current program year.

What: You will be given tests in the subjects that you will be studying – reading, writing, and math - to help with class placement. The multiple-choice reading and math tests are completed on a computer during day two of orientation. You may also be given a non-multiple choice math test so that instructors can evaluate your math skills. For writing, you will be asked to write an essay on a topic provided to you. You will also complete the registration process at orientation.

When: Orientation and assessment testing takes approximately 4-5 hours split over 2 days; approximately 2 hours on the first day, and about 3 hours on the second day. Orientations are scheduled at least twice each term, depending on your location. See the dates below.

Fall Term ABSE classes begin Monday, September 28th and ends December 11, 2015. See class schedule for times.

Why: This orientation places you in courses designed to prepare you to either take the GED test, the college placement tests, or to achieve other goals involving achievements in reading, writing, and math.

Where: See chart below. Find your location in the first column, then follow that line across to find out when and where the orientations are held.

Students returning from Spring 2015 term: Returning spring term students must attend day 1 of one of the Fall orientations to fill our a 2015 admissions form and sign up for computer testing.
