Welcome to Calhoun Community College GED Program. We offer FREE GED classes and testing for learners within our service area. Each GED learner works at his or her own pace and all instructional materials are available at no cost to the learner. Any adult who is at least 18 years of age, and not presently enrolled in school, may participate in the GED program. Learners ages 16 – 17 may take the GED exam only with proper approval and paperwork (see “GED Testing for 16 & 17 Year Olds” on the GED Testing page). A picture ID and Social Security or Tax ID number is required for orientation and two forms of ID are required for GED testing services.
In response to our community needs Adult Education is conducting online classes. Someone will contact you within two business days.

Online GED Study Program
Calhoun Community College offers online learning options for individuals who are not able to take classes in a traditional classroom setting. After students complete the required orientation they are assigned to a GED instructor who will work individually with the student to help create a personalized learning plan and facilitate online instruction. Students must be at a 9th grade reading level to enter into online education services due to the rigor of the program.
