GED and College Prep

How to Apply and Enroll

Follow the steps listed below in order to enroll in and prepare for GED/ABSE classes. These steps will help you enroll, fill out any paperwork you may need to submit, and learn how to use technology to participate in online classes.

GED Students: You need to earn a high school credential because you do not have a high school diploma or because you completed high school in another country and your diploma is not recognized in the US. You may also be interested in preparing for college entry.

ABSE Students: You have a high school diploma or GED and you need to develop academic skills in reading, writing, and/or math before entering a college credit program. ABSE may be a good option for you if you do not currently have financial aid, or your financial aid package consists only of loans.
