Program Information

Pierce College offers classwork to help you prepare for the GED exam. A GED is a certificate that is equivalent to a high school diploma. It meets most employment criteria and the educational eligibility requirement for federal financial aid. With a GED, you can pursue higher education, get employed, and earn promotions or achieve personal goals.

Our GED test preparation courses are part of an integrated instruction model. Classrooms consist of students earning their High School Diploma, taking basic refresher courses, strengthening their English reading and writing, and studying for the GED subject tests. Students can choose from Math, Science, or History courses. Our Science and History courses are blended with English and are team taught with 2 instructors. Our Math, Science, History and English courses do not specifically teach to all content found on the formal GED subject tests. Classes meet for 5-12 hours per week and are available mornings, afternoons or evenings. Classes are offered at the Fort Steilacoom and Puyallup campuses.

Students who are younger than 19 yrs old, who have not yet graduated from high school, must submit a release from the school district in which they reside.

New students will attend an orientation and be scheduled for state required evaluation. Students are then enrolled in classes based on their skills assessment results.
