Register Jan. 11 for GED Preparation Class; Now’s the Time for Partial Completers

Registration for spring semester GED Preparation classes at Front Range Community College-Boulder County Campus is scheduled on a drop-in basis from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Friday, Jan. 11, at 2121 Miller Drive, Longmont.

No appointment is needed to register. Registration takes place in the Classroom Building Commons area.

The cost of the class is $110. The official GED exam costs an additional $120.

Because of upcoming changes to the official GED exam, people who have passed one or more subject areas, without completing all five subject exams, need to finish the entire exam by the end of 2013. If they do not, they will lose all partial tests and have to start over with the new exam in January 2014. FRCC-BCC offers enrollment for students needing partial GED exams. If you are a partial completer, contact C. Kay Uhles, instructional coordinator, at kay.uhles@frontrange.edu or (303) 678-3725.

GED Preparation classes begin Saturday, Jan. 19, and meet from 9 a.m. to noon Saturdays and 5 to 8 p.m. Wednesdays. Classes end Wednesday, March 6.

Students also work online. The online portion is completed anywhere a computer and Internet connection are available, including FRCC computer labs. A minimum of 15 hours of study time online per week is recommended.

In classes, students will learn from experienced GED instructors in addition to their online studies. Individual and/or small-group tutoring is available as needed.
