Graduation and Transition
Congratulations on your achievement! The GED® Prep Program at Seminole State College is thrilled to have helped you become a high school graduate and accomplish your goals! We are equally excited to help you transition to the next step in your education and career!
The Graduation Ceremony (Commencement)
Students who take GED® Prep classes with us are invited to participate in our big graduation ceremony (also known as commencement) that is held two times each year. Commencement is completely free and a lot of fun! Graduates receive a free cap and gown, free graduation tickets for their guests and get to have their accomplishment recognized by College faculty and staff at the event. They get their turn to walk across the stage, take pictures in our designated photo area and celebrate with their family and friends. It's a special, celebratory event for everyone involved.
Students who have already passed the GED® exam - and those who plan on passing soon -are encouraged to contact us as soon as possible about graduation RSVP procedures if they want to participate in the upcoming commencement. More information about commencement can be found at the College's Graduation website.
GED Testing Service Website Setup
The official GED® Testing Service website (GED.com) is where you will be able to view your scores, order official GED® transcripts and request duplicate copies of your high school diploma.
Additionally, at any time you can choose to share your scores with our advisors on GED.com. Sharing scores is very useful, as it allows us to monitor your learning progress as well as verify your scores for purposes related to graduation, transition and scholarships.
Sharing your scores with us on GED.com is easy and takes about two minutes once you have created your free account. View a short video walkthrough of the score-sharing process.
