How do I get my GED?
The first step to getting your GED is to attend an orientation session.  Give yourself 1.5-2 hours for orientation.  After orientation, you will begin to prepare for/take your official tests.
How much does it cost to get a GED?
There is no charge for classes or the materials you will use at the learning center.  Once you are ready for the official tests, they will cost $36 each. All tests fees are covered if you are a full time student at the ALC.
