Adult Basic Education / GED
For General Information or information about Spanish GED, call 971-722-6255. Spanish GED: www.pcc.edu/resources/spanish-ged
ABE (Adult Basic Education) classes offer instruction for adults who wish to improve skills in reading, arithmetic, and writing, or wish to prepare for the State GED (General Education Development) Examination.
If you do not want preparation classes and only want to take the State GED Examination, call the PCC Testing Center at 971-722-5680 for information.
New students must attend a Placement Session before attending class. The Placement Session schedule and locations are listed below by campus. New students must fill out an Admissions Application online at www.pcc.edu/admissions. PCC will email your PCC student ID number. Bring picture ID and your "G" number to the testing session.
Adult Basic Education classes are available at the PCC sites in the morning, afternoon, and evening. However, not every class is available at every site and time. Assignment to these classes will be made at the Placement Session according to the students' schedules and levels.
If English is not your native language, you must show adequate English listening and speaking skills for working in the classroom.

Students who are 16 or 17 years old must take a copy of their written high school release to the placement session.
