General Educational Development (GED)

If you did not complete your high school education, Rockingham Community College offers you the opportunity to earn a General Educational Development (GED) diploma. This can help open new doors for employment or advancement, or allow you to continue your education at RCC.

To obtain a GED diploma, students must pass four tests: Reasoning through Language Arts (Reading), Mathematical Reasoning, Science and Social Studies.  The GED tests will be offered through our Pearson Vue Testing Center located in the Science Building on the RCC main campus.  Call the Basic skills office at 336-342-4261, ext. 2146 for information on the testing schedule.  RCC offers free classes to prepare you for the GED tests.

Free GED preparation classes are offered on the RCC campus, at various community locations in Rockingham County, and online. Admission is open to adults 18 years of age or older (special permission is required for students 16 and 17 years of age).

Orientation and placement testing are required before beginning your GED classes. To schedule your orientation and placement test or for more information on the GED program, please call 336.342.4261, ext. 2146.
