FSCC announces ABE/GED orientation schedule

For those intending to enroll in Fort Scott Community College’s ABE/GED (Adult Basic Education/General Education Development) program next semester, orientation is required, noted Aubrey Duft, program coordinator, who also released the tentative orientation schedule.

Orientation Schedule

  1. Jan. 9-11
  2. Jan. 23-25
  3. Feb. 6-8
  4. Feb. 20-22
  5. March 5-7
  6. March 19-21
  7. April 2-4
  8. April 16-18
  9. April 30-May 2
  10. May 14-16
  11. May 28-30

GED classes, Duft said, are geared toward preparation for the GED test, which includes math, science, social studies and reasoning through language arts.

Requirements for Enrollment

  • Students ages 16 or older meet the requirements
  • For those younger than 18, a compulsory exemption form is required

During orientation, we fill out the required paperwork, take a pre-assessment in reading and math, discuss a general overview of classes and the GED test, and discuss short- and long-term goals,” Duft said.

A material fee of $35 is due the week of orientation. GED-testing fees are paid separately at the time of registration for the exam. Students need to know their Social Security numbers and present a photo ID (if they have one).

Class times are from 9 to 11 a.m. or 1 to 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday with platforms available for distant learning.

“I can work around schedules if needed,” Duft said.

The ABE program is not limited to GED classes, Duft said.

“If a student already has a high school diploma or credential, but needs to improve basic skills in reading and math, I can help with that,” she said. “In January, I also began teaching ESL (English as a Second Language) students, so I have ESL classes available as well.”
