Program Description The College and Career Preparation Program at Edmonds College provides adult students, ages 16 and older, who do not have a secondary credential, with an opportunity to earn high school equivalency by preparing for and earning a GED® certificate in a college environment. Students also have the option and support to earn short term certificates that lead to living wage jobs and higher level education and degrees while completing their GED®. Spanish GED® preparation classes are also available.

Entry Requirements: Students should attend the High School Completion and GED® Enrollment Session. During that orientation, students receive an overview of the GED® program at EC, information about the GED® test and requirements, assessments in reading and math, and information about college and career opportunities at EC. Students must meet minimum reading requirements to enroll in GED® preparation classes. Following this orientation, students meet individually with an advisor to register for classes.

When to apply? Students may begin GED® preparation classes fall, winter, spring, or summer quarters. Classes begin at the beginning of each quarter. Day and evening classes are offered.

Students are advised to:

  • Attend an enrollment session prior to quarter start dates,
  • Meet regularly with their GED® advisor for planning and support, and
  • Utilize campus resources.
