HiSET 101 AM

Free

with Heather Toth, RSU 54/MSAD 54 Adult and Community Education

Calendar Sep 8, 2020 at 8:30 am, runs for 4 weeks

This year we are excited to offer one of our HiSET 101 sessions online. Instruction will occur using tools like Zoom and Google Classroom. Students will still come in occasionally for one-on-one testing. COVID-19 cleaning and safety protocols will, of course, be followed.

Get started in the HiSET® Program by attending our orientation for new students. Orientation will provide an overview of the HiSET® process and guide participants through intake, assessment, and pre-testing. Workshops on college and career planning, financial literacy, and technology skills (all essential skills for success at college and in the workplace) will be provided.

Attendance at orientation classes is mandatory.

At the end of orientation, students will be referred to final HiSET® testing or scheduled for additional academic help.

Students must present a valid photo id and social security card at the first class.

Classes begin every 4 weeks --- call 474-7553 to schedule your orientation.
