SANTA FE, NM – Santa Fe Community College has announced that registration for classes to prepare for High School Equivalency/GED tests is now open. Classes begin April 4 in Spanish and English. Call 505-428-1356 for more information.
To participate, you must fill out and submit an orientation packet. You can pick up an orientation packet at the Adult Education office on the SFCC campus, 6401 Richards Avenue, between 8 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Packets are due back by March 29 to attend the orientation Wednesday, March 30 from 5-9 p.m. and by March 31 to attend the orientation Friday, April 1 from 2-5 p.m.
The classes, which begin April 4, help students prepare for both state-approved tests – the GED and HiSet. Classes are offered at various times in the mornings, afternoons, evenings and Saturdays to fit students’ schedules.
In today’s challenging job market, earning a High School Equivalency certificate gives you the credential equivalent of a high school diploma and can open doors to future job opportunities and better pay. Academic and Career Education Coordinator of Adult Education Lynne Matthes said, “Don’t wait. Now is the time. Get your High School Equivalency and take charge of your future. There is still time to participate in the HSE May graduation ceremony.”
A $25 fee covers all of the classes. Call the Adult Education office at 505-428-1356 (se habla Español) for more information. SFCC is closed for spring break March 14 through March 20.
