GED Prep Program for Underage Students
Who We Are
Daytona State College School of Adult Education Underage GED Policy
Underage students (16 & 17 years of age) wanting to enroll in Daytona State College’s School of Adult Education GED program must first withdraw from public school in order to attend. Please work with your school’s staff and follow their procedure to withdraw.
In order for an underage student to be granted an underage waiver for the GED test, students must:
- Attend face to face classes at one of our School of Adult Education program sites
- Participate and satisfactorily complete required career exploration activities
- Pass all four of the GED Ready practice tests in the following subjects:
- Reasoning Through Language Arts (RLA)
- Social Studies
Once all conditions have been met, a waiver will be granted that allows the underage student to sign up for and take the GED test.
- Depending on the student’s assessment scores in math and reading, it can take anywhere from a month to a year to be granted an underage waiver. Students should expect to attend regularly and work towards improving skills in reading and math to successfully pass the proctored GED Ready practice tests
- In some cases, students may need to attend a “full-time” program. Our program is considered “part-time” and may not qualify you for certain services
- Underage students are required to attend face-to-face classes
- All tests for the GED program are proctored
Steps to Enrolling in the School of Adult Education
