WCC Offers High School Equivalency Exam Cram

October 02, 2017

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

The “High School Equivalency Exam Cram” will be held 6-9 p.m. on Wednesdays, Oct. 11-Nov. 15. Each session is a full three-hour face-to-face class.

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 a High School Equivalency Exam (GED or HiSET) 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 students.

The series is free but pre-registration is required. Participants can sign up in person at the Transitional Programs for College and Career 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.

Attendance at the first class session on Oct. 11 is also mandatory.

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.
