GED Preparation

GED preparation classes are available for students to study for the General Educational Development exam. The length of study time depends on how much a student devotes to studying and the level at which the student begins.  Students may take practice tests to determine how successful they would be on the GED exam.

When a student has finished their GED preparation courses they will need to make an appointment to take the official GED exam with Advising & Testing at (541) 278-5931.

A school release is required before an individual, less than 18 years old, may attempt the test.  A fee of $125.00 is required at the time of the first test. This fee pays for the following five parts of the GED tests.  However, it does not cover a re-test if necessary.

Language Arts, Writing (parts 1 & 2)
Social Studies
Science
Language Arts, Reading
Mathematics (part 1 & 2)

BMCC students who earn a GED can choose to participate in the BMCC Commencement ceremony held in June.
