Beginning January 1, 2014, all GED testing centers will implement a totally new exam that must be taken online at an approved testing center and that complies with Common Core educational standards that were introduced by the National Governor’s Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers and adopted across the U.S. The new exam will incorporate more rigorous national standards for high school-equivalent education addressing the needs of students to be college and career-ready.
Clatsop Community College (CCC) encourages all students currently in, or considering, the GED testing process to complete testing by the December 6, 2013 deadline. After this date, those with incomplete test scores will need to start the test process from the beginning in the new system. Partial scores cannot be carried forward.
CCC is continuing to offer GED preparation classes and testing through December 6, 2013. To enroll in preparation classes or to schedule testing, please contact George Heiner in Columbia Hall Room 114 or call 503-338-2347.
