To earn a General Education Development diploma, you must pass a standardized test to prove your proficiency at the high school level in the five major subject areas, which include (1) social studies, (2) science, (3) math, (4) language arts reading, and (5) language arts writing, which includes the writing of an essay of 250 words or more. All public and most private colleges and universities as well as most employees accept a GED.

Instruction and Curriculum
The curriculum ranges from basic literacy level to twelfth-grade level instructions in reading, writing, social studies, science, and math. Instruction is a combination of traditional lecture, individualized lab assignments based on assessment results consisting of workbooks and computer drills all aimed at passing the GED tests.

These fees are paid to the testing centers at either the testing center at Kilgore College-Longview, 753-2642, or the testing center, Kilgore College-Kilgore, 983-8215.

English as a Second Language ESL
Classes are especially for adults seventeen years of age or older whose primary language is not English, and whose reading, writing and speaking skills are below the level to function effectively in an English literate society.

All instruction is done in English and instructional levels range from zero literacy either in English or the native language to advance level where the student has the competency of a native English speaker in two of the three areas, speaking, reading, or writing, but needs more practice in one.
