ABSE/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/GED classes. Returning students should check in with the front office first, if they have been in the program prior to the current program year, which began July 1st, 2016.

What: Orientations are scheduled at least twice each term, and take about 4-5 hours over 2 days:

Day 1 Session (about an hour): You will learn about our program and complete new student admissions forms and be given a math assessment to help evaluate your math skills. Day 2 (about 3 hours): You will be given CASAS tests in the subjects that you will be studying – reading and math to help place you into the proper classes. The multiple-choice reading and math tests are completed on a computer during day two of orientation, followed by scheduling with the ABSE Staff.

Why: The orientation process helps us place you in the appropriate 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.
