    Q: How do I get started in the classes?

    A: Go to the SCC Continuing Education Office, 8800 O Street, Room J-2, to sign up and pay the registration fee for the ESL Orientation. At the ESL Orientation, the ESL Placement Test will be given to determine which level in our program is best for the student.


    Q: Where do I go for the placement test?
    A: The ESL Placement Test is given during the ESL Orientation.  We have ESL Orientation at several locations in Lincoln.  Please go to the SCC Continuing Education Office, 8800 O Street, Room J-2, to sign up for the ESL Orientation.


    Q: Can I take the GED® tests online?

    A: No, only at centers officially designated to administer GED® testing. An official GED® credential cannot be obtained from online commercial programs.


    Q: How long will it take to get my GED® credentials?
    A: The individual's skill level determines how many classes it takes to upgrade his/her skills.  Students are assessed in an orientation on their basic skill levels before entering the classes so that they know exactly what is needed to do to be successful on the GED® tests.
