RCC Offering Prep Course for New GED® Test

ASHEBORO (February 28, 2014)

Randolph Community College is offering a free Prep Course for students who plan to take the GED® test to obtain their high school equivalency diploma.
           
The daytime classes meet 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday with classes starting in March, April and May. An evening class is available and will meet from 5:30-8:30 p.m., Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. RCC will also offer an online option to students in addition to regular classroom hours.
           
RCC’s Prep Course covers all GED® subject areas: Mathematical Reasoning, Science, Social Studies, and Reasoning Through Language Arts. RCC staff from across the College will be providing support for students in the program, including RCC Writing Center faculty who will work with students on the Language Arts section, said Ashley Moody, director of adult basic education and adult high school at RCC. Student Services personnel will also provide guidance for students who want to transition into college classes after earning their high school equivalency diploma.
           
In January, the GED® Testing Service launched a new computer-based test. This new Prep Course is designed to help students successfully pass that test.
           
The RCC Prep Course is free. For more information, contact RCC’s Career and College Readiness Division at 336-633-0106 in Asheboro or 336-862-7980 in Archdale.
