GED classes are designed for adults 16 years of age or older who have not earned their high school diploma and who are not currently enrolled in a school program. Instruction helps students prepare to take the General Educational Development Test (GED), administered by the state Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation, so they can receive their Maryland high school diploma. The test consists of five program areas: writing, social studies, science, literature, and mathematics.

Based on the results of their Comprehensive Adult Student Assessment System (CASAS) pre-test scores (Reading 236 and Math 226), which the College administers, students will be advised to register for the next available GED class.
