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 within the current program year, which began July 1st, 2015.

What: Day 1 Session (about 1-2 hours): 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 aid in the placement of our 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.

When: Orientation and assessment takes about 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 location. See the dates below.

Winter Term ABSE classes begin Monday, January 4 and end March 18, 2016. See class schedule for times.

Why: This orientation process helps place 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.
