WCC Offers Condensed High School Equivalency Exam Cram

February 20, 2018

Wayne Community College will offer a six-session, condensed high school equivalency exam preparatory series.

The “GED®/HiSET™ Exam Cram” will be held 6-9 p.m. on Wednesdays, Feb. 21-March 21. Each session is a full three-hour face-to-face class. Attendance at the first class session on Feb. 21 is required to enter the program.

The series will cover all aspects of both the GED® and HiSET™ exams. The program is intensive to accommodate students who cannot come to classes for a whole semester.

“At the end of the sessions, students will be prepared to either take one of the high school equivalency exams or will know what steps they need to take in order to achieve their credential,” said Karen Burnette, program quality and accountability coordinator in the college’s Transitional Programs for College and Career.

The Exam Cram is open to anyone interested in getting a high school credential, including current and former WCC Basic Skills (now called “Transitional Programs for College and Career”) students.

The series is free but pre-registration is required. Participants can sign up in person at the TPCC office in Room 220 in the Walnut Building on the WCC campus in Goldsboro, by e-mailing ejbabb@waynecc.edu, or calling 919-739-6908.

WCC’s High School Equivalency program provides classes both on and off campus for adults age 18 and older to prepare for the GED® or HiSET™ tests and earn diplomas. It is one of several programs in the Basic Skills Department that address the needs of Wayne County’s adult residents with below-high school education levels or who lack basic skills necessary to function effectively in society.
