  • Registration takes about 1 1/2 hours.
  • Our programs are FREE, so you do not need any money.
  • During the registration process, you will complete a registration form, take a reading comprehension assessment (short reading test), a math assessment (GED Students ONLY),  and meet with the program manager to discuss your transcripts. You will leave your transcripts with us so we can review them in detail.
