Diploma, GED, ABE or ESL Classes: Assessment REQUIRED.
Students must assess each fiscal year. For assessment, you do not need to schedule an appointment – use the assessment schedule below to determine when and where to appear.
Assessment areas are all located on our Mt. Vernon Campus. “Being in line early to be assured of a test seat in any one of our 1½ - 2 hour assessments of your basic education skills is advised”. Classes have filled very quickly in past sessions, therefore delaying your assessment may mean “not” being able to obtain desired classes. No fee counseling for Diploma and Adult Basic Education is provided after assessment.

Diploma or GED & ABE assess in Bldgs. 505 and 506 at Gate 4. (turn right just after entering Gate 4)
