Your GED success begins right where you are. On average students spend 1 year in our program, though many students attend classes for more than a year. The official GED test sections are proctored at local community colleges. We assist students in signing up for the test sections through the GED Testing Service website. Students sign up for test sections at community college locations most convenient to them.
We offer a 12-week semester in both the fall and spring, and offer 3-week mini semesters in between. Our classes are Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday 9:00 am-1:00 pm. Literacy tutor pairs meet 90 minutes a week, meeting in public locations such as a library.
Our program is not drop-in. We expect students who enroll to attend the whole semester of classes. At this time we do not offer evening classes. An online program and an offsite tutoring program is available for students who meet the qualifications. You must take the GAIN pretest with us in order to determine in which program you will be enrolled.
Call the Education Center at (205) 595-5959 to sign up for the GAIN pretest assessment. The test is offered on the third Monday of the month and takes about 2 hours. Your scores will be available immediately and we will talk to you about program enrollment once your test is complete. You will need to bring a valid, state-issued photo ID on the day of your pretest.
All of our programs are free to all students. M-POWER pays all test fees, and provides all materials to students who are enrolled.
