To begin the GED Prep classes, students must complete the two-part CASAS Goals Reading and Math Placement Test. This free test is offered on a walk-in basis at our Sanford/Lake Mary, Altamonte, and Oviedo Assessment and Testing Centers during hours of operation. Please note that giving your best effort can ensure more accurate results for class placement.

Placement Test Information

After completing the placement test, a Student Services staff member will help you complete a registration form in person based on your scores and class availability. Or, if you prefer, they will email you an electronic Adult Education registration form with suggested courses. If you register via email, please make sure to check the email account you listed on your registration/preference form for the E-Signature Verification email.

Once you have registered for GED® Prep classes, a Student Services staff member will provide either a print-out or digital copy via email of your schedule that includes your $30 registration fee due date. Visiting one of our campus Student Accounting offices is the easiest way to pay for classes.  If you prefer to pay online, below is information on how to do so:

Online Payment

Note, to avoid losing your classes, it is important to pay the $30 fee before the payment deadline printed on your fee schedule.  If you need help with online payment, please contact Student Accounting or the Help Desk during regular hours of operation.

Our orientations are not mandatory but are strongly recommended for new students. At orientation we give an overview of our program, answer questions, discuss the GED® exam and talk about what comes after you pass. Orientation usually takes about one hour to complete. Those unable to attend an orientation in person can access a recorded version and other new student info on our GED® Prep orientation website.
