    COVID19 UPDATE - All GED prep classes have shifted to online/distance learning due to Maryland’s State of Emergency orders associated with the Coronavirus. Virtual testing and registrations are currently being administered.

    Baltimore City Community College offers virtual GEDprep classes to adults who are 18+ years of age. The instructional goal is to assist students with earning their Maryland high school diploma by preparing them to take four GED exams (Reasoning through Language Arts (RLA), Mathematical Reasoning (Math), Social Studies and Science). For more information on the GED® exams, click here.

    To begin the process, students are encouraged to view or attend an online information session to learn about TABE virtual testing procedures, online tools training, registration, and prep classes.

    Information sessions are held every Wednesday at 1 p.m. on ZOOM
    Zoom session ID: 962 2373 6890

    After a successful online tools training has been completed, the student will be scheduled to take a RLA and Math TABE assessment to determine their educational skill levels.

    Along with teacher direct instruction, students will use other online platforms to hone in on their individual needs. For every hour in class, two-three hours should be devoted towards studying. 

    Classes are at no cost to the student. Start now by attending the online information session. Call 410-986-3200 or email for more information between the hours of 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
