How to register


GED® students register at the beginning of Career Pathway Orientation classes. Career Pathway Orientation classes are the first part of beginning GED® classes.

Orientation/Registration Classes 

We have weekly Orientation Classes for new students on our main campus only, but we have GED® classes in ten locations and online. To attend Orientation Classes students must come to our main campus at 526 Appleyard Dr.

First-time Day students must arrive to class on Tuesdays by 8:30 a.m. or 12:30 p.m. (See the schedule below) Be early or on time. Space is limited. Plan to stay through the entire scheduled time for all three days of the session. Tuition fees must be paid at the time of registration when you start Career Pathways Classes. New students will begin GED® class upon completion of the three days of the Orientation Class and will be assigned to the class time and location they prefer if available.

First-Time Night students attend Orientation Classes on both Tuesday and Wednesday evenings.They should arrive no later than 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, plan to stay through the entire scheduled time for both Tuesday and Wednesday sessions and pay tuition fees at the beginning of the class. Participants will begin GED® class the following scheduled class day after completing the Orientation Class.

Students who were enrolled and completed Orientation/Registration Class in 2016-17 at ACE will be considered returning students. Returning students must arrive to an Orientation Class, on Tuesdays, plan to stay through the entire scheduled time, and pay their tuition when they register. Returning students will only attend Orientation Class on Tuesday.
