Barton Community College’s Center for Adult Education will soon be starting its nine-week GED Preparation Class. The orientation day, which is a prerequisite for the course, will be held from 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. and 3-7 p.m. on May 25 at 1025 Main St. in Great Bend. The morning class session will begin the following Tuesday from 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. and the afternoon class session will meet 3-7 p.m.
There is a one-time $50 fee for materials. Once students have completed the preparation courses, they will be able to take the official GED test. The cost to take the GED test is $132.
Individuals who are interested in taking the GED exam without any preparation instruction can take it right away, but are urged to receive advising before moving forward.
Students must bring a valid ID. Minors must bring a parent or legal guardian to enroll and must also bring their disclaimer or exemption documentation from their high school or online program.
