August 17, 2015

Southeastern Illinois College has announced the Fall schedule for Adult Education (GED) classes and locations and continues to make certain that students have all means needed to help them successfully obtain their High School Equivalency (GED) diploma.

SIC offers Adult Education (GED) classes at several times and locations around the area to better meet the needs of students and allowing students to choose the place that best fits their schedule. Locations include SIC main campus in Harrisburg (begins Sept 1 at 8:30 a.m. or 5 p.m.); Harrisburg District Library (begins Sept 3 at 10:30 a.m.); Shawneetown: Mondays at City Hall, Wednesdays at the Library (begins Sept 2 at 1 p.m.); First Baptist Church in Golconda (begins Sept 1 at 9 a.m.); and SIC’s White County Center in Carmi (begins Aug 31 at 9 a.m.).  Registration is made simple by registering the first night of class.

All classes are free and textbooks and classrooms materials are also provided at no cost to students. The department can also offer a free GED Ready Official practice test to students who meet certain criteria, an excellent indicator of success on the actual GED test.  Additionally, to those who qualify, scholarships have been made available to cover the cost of the GED exam through a grant received from the Dollar General Family Literacy Foundation.

Free transportation has been made available through Rides Mass Transit District to ensure students are able to arrive to their classes.

“SIC’s Adult Education department is very excited to start a new year and help Adult Ed students meet their educational and career goals,” said Angie Dunk, ABE/GED Coordinator and Data Manager at SIC. “We have numerous materials and resources available that will ensure students’ success.”

For students interested in healthcare that are taking an Adult Education (GED) class, SIC has also created a Bridge program that serves as an introduction into Healthcare for students.

The Bridge program focuses on gaining skills for transitioning directly into an entry level position in healthcare or to continue into post-secondary education. To be eligible for this program, the student must be 16 years of age or older, in need of their GED diploma, interested in healthcare and interested in post-secondary education. This program begins September 8.
