Adult Basic Education/GED
The Adult Basic Education/GED classes prepare students to take the GED test. All students must take a diagnostic test to determine their strengths and weaknesses prior to being placed in a class. GED preparation emphasizes the skills necessary to pass the five subject areas in reading writing, science, social studies, and mathematics. These free classes are offered in the morning, afternoon, or evening on the MCC campus and at several locations throughout Lauderdale County.
Meridian Community College offers Adult Basic Education/GED classes to prepare students to pass the Official GED Test. ABE/GED classes are taught at several locations around Meridian and Lauderdale County. Students seventeen (17) years of age are eligible to attend and MUST provide a drop/withdrawal form confirming they are no longer enrolled in a secondary school.
ENROLLMENT for GED classes takes place four (4) times a year.
During enrollment students will take a pre-test to evaluate what level of instruction is needed. Pre-testing is used to evaluate the student's preparedness and make class assignments. Allow approximately 2 to 2 1/2 hours for testing.
The ABE/GED Office will assign an instructor, class location, and schedule based on student's skill level and availability of classes.
