INA, Ill. (Feb. 7, 2014) – Next week, registration and classes will begin for the new GED test through the Rend Lake College Adult Education GED Program. With six locations in the RLC district and free enrollment, now is the time to take advantage of the new changes to the test.
The new GED test has been redesigned to better prepare adults without a high school diploma for higher education and the workplace. Some of the changes to the GED test include options to take one test at a time instead of in one 8-hour sitting, paying for one test at a time, utilizing a new website as a one-stop resource for students and getting notified immediately of test results.
Registration and classes begin at RLC on Monday, Feb. 13 and Tuesday, Feb. 14. Students are required to attend both days.
The GED morning classes are held from 9 a.m. until noon at the following locations: Benton Library, RLC MarketPlace in Mt. Vernon and the RLC Murphy-Wall Pinckneyville Campus. Evening classes are held from 6 pm until 9 pm at the following locations: Benton Community High School, the RLC MarketPlace and Christopher High School. Additional classes will be held at the McLeansboro Family Resource Center. For class times contact the Adult Education and Family Literacy office.
