Press Release

November 11, 2013 at 2:35 PM

Fort Morgan, CO. 11/11/13. Morgan Community College (MCC) would like to remind area residents that the current General Educational Development (GED) tests will expire at the end of the year. Beginning in January 2014, MCC will offer the new GED test. Upon test completion, students will earn a High School Equivalency diploma from the state of Colorado, a nationally recognized alternative for adults who did not complete a traditional high school diploma program. The GED is widely accepted for purposes of employment, post-secondary education and financial aid for post-secondary enrollment. The diploma is currently awarded after successful completion of tests in five areas: language arts reading, language arts writing, science, social studies and mathematics. Morgan Community College offers these tests, as well as classes to assist in preparation for the tests. GED preparation classes are offered at Cedar Hall on the MCC campus, as well as at Cargill in Fort Morgan through the Workplace Education program, and the MCC Centers in Wray, Limon, and Burlington.

The current GED test has been in effect since 2002 and will expire at the end of December, 2013. Diplomas will continue to be issued upon successful completion of all five tests through December 19, 2013. Individual tests that have been passed will not be valid after December if the entire battery has not been successfully completed.

The new tests will be available in January and classes at MCC sites are already preparing students for the new design, which features computerized testing and a more stringent testing process that aligns the questions to the Common Core Standards of K-12 and post-secondary education. There will only be four areas: reading through language arts, science, social studies and mathematical reasoning, with some questions involving written skills present in each test. 

Anyone who have taken some of the tests for the current GED, but have not completed the full battery, can visit Cedar Hall or call 970-542-3270 for information concerning completing the tests. Registration for classes to prepare for the new tests is ongoing at the Fort Morgan campus Monday through Thursday from 9 AM-4 PM, and Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 4 PM-8 PM.
