Distant learning may be a more convenient means to obtain
your GED, but it does NOT make it an easier task!
The GED program is intended to develop and measure mastery of skills and general knowledge in primary subject areas in preparation for potential work and college opportunities. This program is available for adults 18 years or older who wish to complete the high school equivalency credential.
To obtain a GED, the student must pass 4 tests covering 4 years of high school curriculum. These tests are given to ascertain general knowledge in Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies.
Students desiring enrollment in one of our Literacy Online programs but not reading at a 9th grade level could be assigned to Pre-GED in order to prepare for testing above 9th grade level. The objective is to first raise those reading skills to a 9th grade or better level. A similar program will also be available to provide improvement in basic math skills.
The 2014 GED Test:
General Educational Development (GED test) is a high school equivalency credential. Students complete the GED test when they pass official tests on each of four subject areas.
*VGCC is a Pearson Vue Authorized Test Center and is approved to deliver the 2014 GED test on computer at two campus locations: Main and Franklin.
