EOC staff will assist persons seeking information or admission to GED/AEL classes in their area. GED/AEL classes are for those persons who are seeking to obtain their high school equivalency diploma. These centers are designed to prepare students to take and pass their General Education Development test (GED). Class time is customized for each student to allow them to learn at their own pace. All classes are free of charge. A listing of area classes can be found at the Adult Education & Literacy site.
