Finger Lakes Community College offers adults 17 and older three ways to prepare for the General Equivalency Diploma (GED) exam. All are free of charge. Options are as follows:
A total of 15 traditional day and evening classes at various locations and times. Both day and evening classes are offered in Canandaigua, Newark, and Geneva. Day classes are offered in Lyons, Penn Yan, and Victor. Evening classes are held in Sodus and North Rose. Classes begin Aug. 29, but people may register at any time. For specific days and times, call (585) 785-1431.
Online courses in which students move at their own pace, complete a series of exercises in five subjects and report to a teacher each week.
A television course offered on FLTV Channel 12, WXXI (Channel 21) in Rochester and WCNY (Channel 24) in Syracuse. Students complete workbook assignments and speak with a tutor each week. Lessons focus on the workplace and demonstrate practical applications of the skills and knowledge for the GED exam.
Before beginning one of these programs, students must attend a three-hour orientation, which includes completing basic math and reading tests. For information or to sign up for an orientation, call the FLCC adult basic education program office at (585) 785-1431.
