GED Preparation *FREE*
HBAS GED preparation is completely online and FREE as in absolutely NO OUT OF POCKET COST. We are returning to an in-person Hybrid Schedule on Tuesday, February 23, 2021. Students are welcome to come to the Westminster Mall site for any additional help by reserving a seat on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. The BESST Center (Costa Mesa) time blocks are on a Tuesday or Thursday morning or on a Wednesday evening. If no reservation is made, seats will be available on a first come first serve basis.
*Students must be 18 years or older (and no longer attending high school) to enroll.
HBAS preparation courses are designed to prepare students to pass all sections of the GED. Students at HBAS begin by taking a diagnostic assessment that identifies their academic strengths and weaknesses, and coursework is assigned based on those results.
All GED coursework is available online; students may use the computers (Chromebooks and laptops) at the HBAS sites as often as they wish (open hours) and are also encouraged to work from home.
The Westminster Mall location is a GED® testing site, and HBAS students may qualify for FREE Ready® and GED® test vouchers!*
The GED Ready® test voucher allows a student to take a FREE practice test ($6 value per subject: Math, Science, Social Studies or Reasoning Through Language Arts) and a GED® test voucher allows a student to take one of the four tests for FREE ($35 value per subject: Math, Science, Social Studies, or Reasoning Through Language Arts).
*Located on the lower level next to JCPenney (see map).
PLEASE NOTE | As a WIOA, Title II funded agency, all GED students at Huntington Beach Adult School are required to participate in CASAS testing throughout their preparation for GED.
