GED/Adult High School
- Some students may need to refresh their basic skills in reading, math, and writing before they begin the GED program. ADULT BASIC EDUCATION (ABE) provides basic skills preparation for adults who are not ready to begin GED materials. ABE focuses on developing the skills to get a job, including reading, math, writing, and critical thinking. GED focuses on the preparation for the GED exam, which includes five tests in the areas of Language Arts - Writing, Social Studies, Science, and Language Arts - Reading, and Math.
- Students are first given a placement test to determine their reading, math, and writing skill levels. Most students go through a study program to prepare for GED testing. Instruction is provided in a structured classroom program or in a study lab setting where students work at their own pace with instructors available to assist them when needed. Study site hours vary depending on site location. Practice tests are given to determine when a student is ready for the GED exam. For more information, call 704-922-6320.
- The fee for GED testing is only $35.00.
- Upon successful completion of the GED tests, the student will receive a high school equivalency diploma from the North Carolina Department of Community Colleges.

Adult High School Diploma (AHS) offers day and evening courses for high school credit to adults who desire to complete their high school diploma. This program parallels the traditional high school diploma. A student must score 9th grade on the reading assessment test in order to enter the Adult High School.
- There is no tuition for the program; however, students must purchase their own books, which average between $10.00-$25.00 per credit taken.
- Each student must request an official transcript from the last school attended. The transcript is evaluated to determine the number of credits already earned and the ones still needed for completion of the diploma. The number of credits required is determined by the student’s original graduation date.
- Day and evening classes are offered on a semester system. For more information, call 704-922-6318 at the Dallas Campus or 704-748-1045 at the Lincoln Campus.
