GED® Prep - Spring 2022 classes start January 10
Prepare for the GED® Exam 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 that diploma like one 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.

To begin GED® Prep classes, students must complete a free placement test to assess their knowledge in each of these areas: reading, math and language. It is not necessary to study for the placement test. Even if you have been out of school for a long time, don't worry. When it's time to take the test just try to relax, do the best you can, and know that there is no such thing as failing the exam. However, you should try to do your best so we can obtain an accurate picture of what you know about the subjects and topics.
The placement test is given on a walk-in basis and also by appointment at Altamonte Springs, Oviedo and Sanford/Lake Mary. For more info, please see the Assessment and Testing hours and services website.
