6. Are there scholarships for the GED® test?
GED® testing scholarships are currently not being offered by STC. However, we suggest that you speak with any agencies you may be involved with, they may have funding available as well as private funding.
7. Can I fail the placement test?
Absolutely not! All the TABE or Best Literacy Test (for ESL) does is measure what you know when you take the test. The test is not pass/fail. Instead, the test helps us customize your learning experience. We are committed to helping you learn, or re-learn, the skills you need to be successful.
8. What can I do when I am done with classes?
With most jobs by the year 2020 requiring more than a high school diploma or GED, we recommend you look at one of our short-term, affordable postsecondary programs.
9. How long should the program last?
That is a hard question. It depends on (a) where your skills are right now, and (b) how much time and effort you put into it. This is different for every person. Nonetheless, you should work with your instructor to set personal goals and do everything you can to meet those goals.
The bottom line: we want you to complete this program as quickly as you can.
10. What makes a successful student in a GED® or ESL class?
Be prepared. Be present. Be positive. Be on time. Be willing to develop a relationship with your instructor. They care and want you to succeed!
