Learn More About RCC’s GED Online Program

RCC’s GED Online program is designed to fit the needs of students who are unable to attend a traditional class. Classes are open to students 18 years and older, as well as 16 or 17 year olds who submit additional forms for GED testing. Students enrolled in GED Online are required to do all testing in person.

GED Online is a five-part series of courses covering the five basic parts of the GED examination. It includes language/writing, math, science, social studies and literature/fine arts. The online courses include tutorials, applications and mastery tests, and materials and teacher support are free to enrolled students.

To enter the GED Online program at Richmond Community College in Hamlet and Laurinburg, NC, students must attend and complete an assessment/orientation session. An online pretest is required before beginning each study segment, which will result in an online study plan for the student. The pre-test is the only portion that cannot be retaken. Once you have taken the pretest, it will give you a grade and course of study needed to complete the segment. All assignments listed from the pretest must be completed before moving on to the next segment.
