FAQs

How long does it take to complete GED classes and graduate?

This depends entirely on the student. Each student who enrolls in our program does so with their individual knowledge skillset and will work at their own pace. We strive to ensure all students are prepared to take the exam – no matter the length of times it takes to accomplish that. The more work each student puts into getting their education (studying, taking notes, asking questions, actively asking about your scores, etc.), the more they will get out of this program. It could take one semester, two semesters, even four or five semesters – it all depends on the effort and attitude that is put into learning.

When can I start?

Contact Christine Dunn at 352-658-4077 ext. 2119 or email dunnc@cf.edu for specific dates and information. You can also visit the Class Schedules tab for general information regarding each semester.

If I pass a portion of the GED but I don’t graduate in the same semester will I have to retake it?

No, all your progress stays with you once you pass a subject.

Can I be GED Ready in one subject but still be on TABE in another?

Yes, the TABE test tells us roughly how well you might do on the actual GED test. For example, you could meet the cut score in Reading & Language (which will allow you to take the RLA GED Ready) and yet still need to take the TABE test for Math because you have not met the cut score in that subject.

How much does the program cost?

The program costs $30 per semester. There are 3 semesters a year: spring, summer, and fall. This covers your classes, TABE test and up to 3 retakes, 1 GED Ready test per subject, workbooks, and access to teachers for tutoring/instruction.

How long are the semesters?

Spring Semester – 16 Weeks
Summer Semester – 12 Weeks
Fall Semester – 16 Weeks

Do you normally offer night and online classes?

Yes, we typically offer night classes in the Fall & Spring semesters only; there are no night classes during the summer semester. Due to COVID-19, our Face-to-Face classes are limited and many of our classes are held virtually through Zoom.

Can I just schedule the GED test?

There are 4 subtests that make up the GED (RLA, Math, Social Studies, & Science) that you can schedule separately.
Adults can schedule 1 or all 4 sections of the GED when they feel like they are ready to pass it. We suggest taking no more than one at a time.
Minors must submit passing Ready scores in order to request an age waiver, which must be approved by the state for them to schedule any portion of the GED.

Do I need to buy any books or supplies?

You will not need to buy any books! We have workbooks that you can take home and we will also share online resources with you throughout the entire semester. If online, you will need to have internet access and access to a computer. You will also need paper & pencils/pens, and anything else that may help you study (index cards, sticky notes, etc.).

Are there any scholarships and/or financial assistance available for students?

Students may be eligible for scholarships and/or financial assistance depending upon what is available at the time of enrolling. Contact Christine Dunn for more information, 352-658-4077 ext. 2119 or dunnc@cf.edu.
