GED® Prep Online - Fall B classes start October 19
Prepare for the GED® Exam online with Seminole State College!
Did you know that in the state of Florida the GED® exam is an alternative pathway to earn a high school diploma? It's true! When you pass the exam you are awarded a high school diploma issued by the Florida Department of Education. You can use it just like you would a diploma earned in the traditional high school environment. A high school diploma will allow you to:
- Get a job or a promotion
- Go to college
- Pursue a trade
- Qualify for financial aid
The GED® Prep Program at Seminole State College has helped thousands of students pass the GED® exam, earn their degrees and accomplish their goals.
Fall 2020 Classes Online
Due to the coronavirus pandemic and based on guidance from the Florida Department of Education, all Seminole State College campuses and physical facilities are closed to students until further notice. All Fall 2020 classes have been moved to a virtual/online format while faculty and staff work remotely. We will update this website when a timeline is in place to reopen campus services and in-person classes. Even though we are all dealing with some significant changes, here are some things to remember:
- Even if you have never taken online classes before, we will make sure that you can succeed in our virtual classroom.
- Our award-winning professors can teach you by video on your computer or mobile device.
- Advisors are available via email, phone and video to help you from application all the way to graduation and everything in between.
Although we all must work remotely for a while, know that we are still ready to help you get back on track and achieve your academic and career goals.
