General Education Development (GED®) Classes At ICC
Free GED® classes are offered at all four ICC campuses and at several sites in our community college district. Class schedules vary by site, but generally meet two days each week for three hours each session. Class times also vary by site, but most classes are offered during the morning or evening hours. Afternoon classes are offered at three sites.
An online GED preparation option (i-Pathways) is offered for eligible students. A Spanish GED preparation class is offered for Spanish-speaking students.
Our classes are designed to prepare students with the skills and information needed to pass the GED Tests. Our GED classes are in session for 16 weeks with the exception of the summer semester when classes are in session for 8 weeks. Summer classes are only offered if funding is available. Students needing extensive preparation may need to attend classes for several semesters in order to pass the GED Tests.
GED classes are generally offered at these locations during the fall and spring semesters. Summer semester classes, if available, are generally limited to two or three sites.

If funding and openings are available, enrollment in our classes takes place at the beginning and midterm of each semester. Students are admitted on a first-come, first-served basis and classes fill up quickly.
Interested students must participate in a screening, which consists of a reading and a math test and must demonstrate a reading grade level of at least 4.0. Registration for classes takes place at the screenings.
