As of January 1, 2014, the rules regarding the GED completion process changed significantly. To help those who desire to complete a GED this year, the college will begin offering a new round of GED classes in early February. A class orientation session to explain the new GED parameters will be held on Thursday, February 6th at the Adult Family Education Program’s (AFEP) center on campus. This class orientation will be at 4 p.m. and it is mandatory for someone doing the GED at NJC. The following day, February 7th, from 9 to noon, students who are seeking the GED will be asked to do some testing to evaluate where they are at academically. This testing will take place on campus as well. Details regarding the testing will be explained during the Wednesday orientation session. GED classes will follow the orientation session and testing. They will be held on Mondays through Thursdays between 9 a.m. and 12 noon and again between 2:15 and 5 p.m. beginning February 10th. The orientation session and classes will take place at the AFEP center on campus which is at the corner of Sydney Avenue and Landrum Lane across from the cosmetology building.
The AFEP at Northeastern Junior College offers a variety of programming for adult learners. Many of these programs have a family emphasis and involve several generations of the same family. Classes held include pre-GED and GED instruction in reading, writing, math, science and social studies, as well as practice GED test sessions; college entrance assistance and transition classes, basic computer skills, workplace skills and college readiness classes, English as a Second Language (ESL) classes. Some classes offer childcare in the building at the same time they are taking place.
