General Education Development (GED®)

SPCC’s high school equivalency preparation courses offer instruction to assist learners in preparing to successfully pass a designated high school equivalency exam. This test is designed to document knowledge equivalent to a graduating high school senior. A high school equivalency diploma is issued from the North Carolina Community College System office. Through December 31, 2014, North Carolina will use the Pearson Vue General Educational Development Test (GED®) to measure high school equivalency.

Our department strongly recommends that potential test takers call our department and come to an Orientation and Testing session, either at the 4209 Old Charlotte Highway campus in Monroe, or, at the Lockhart Taylor Center at 514 N. Washington Street, in Wadesboro. These placement tests are free of charge and if you need to review any subjects, we will enroll you in our free classes to improve your skills before you take the high school equivalency exam.

High School Equivalency classes prepare adult students to learn or review basic high school subjects. Classes are offered by SPCC both on and off campus, day or night.

Earning your High School Equivalency diploma is an excellent way for adults 18 and older to find their way to better paying jobs and higher education. Millions of adults have earned their high school equivalency diploma, which is accepted at all community colleges throughout the nation.
