What is a GED?
GED is a high school equivalency test that is accepted as a substitute for a high school diploma. A GED can be earned by anyone who has not completed high school and who is at least 16 years old.
The subject areas for the GED exam are: Reasoning Through Language Arts, Mathematical Reasoning, Science, and Social Studies.
Why is a GED important?
Having a GED opens doors to college, jobs, job training, and apprenticeship programs. You will also gain the satisfaction of having earned your high school credential.
How long does it take?
The time it takes to pass the GED exam varies from student to student. It depends on your skill level in the subjects when you start and, more importantly, by the amount of time and effort you put into studying, and how regularly you attend classes. You should plan your schedule and commit to all of your classes to make the most rapid progress.
- If you complete at least 60 hours of classes through UCC's GED program and earn your GED, you are eligible for one tuition-free term at UCC (does not include class fees and supplies). Note: Students in Roseburg High School's GED program are not eligible for a tuition waiver at UCC.
- UCC provides ongoing support to students and can help you transition into work.
- GED classes are held in the mornings, afternoons, and evenings.
- Classes are offered at a variety of settings, including UCC's main campus, the Woolley Center in Roseburg, the South County Center in Tri City, Glendale High School, and Glide High School.
