Adult Education and General Education Development (GED)

Adult Education is a program sponsored jointly by the Nebraska State Department of Education and MCC. This program is for adults 18 years of age or older; however, people who are at least 16 years of age and are not enrolled in a regular high school program may enroll with special permission from the Nebraska State Department of Education. This program offers students the opportunity to develop basic skills in reading, writing, and math.

This program also consists of GED preparation classes that prepare adults for the General Education Development examination, which is a nationally standardized test of high school equivalency. There is an application fee for the high school diploma and a testing fee. The high school diploma is issued by the Nebraska Department of Education upon successful completion of the examination.

The GED examination consists of the following four timed tests:

  • Reasoning through language arts (150 minutes)
  • Social studies (90 minutes)
  • Science (90 minutes)
  • Mathematical reasoning (115 minutes)

MCC is also authorized by GED Testing Service to provide official GED testing.
