Barton Community College to host Adult Ed classes downtown

Barton Community College’s Center for Adult Education will soon begin another nine-week session of classes. However, orientation days are required before starting the classes. Students must attend all orientation days in person. They will be held from 1-4 p.m. on Sept. 12-15 at the Center for Adult Education, located at 1025 Main St. in Great Bend.

The first day of class will start on Sept. 20 and attendance is required to complete the orientation process. Classes will be held from 1-4 p.m. every Tuesday and Thursday. 

Students will complete the required testing, learn how to navigate their account and learn about WorkReady! Students will also meet one-on-one with their instructor to discuss goals, expectations, attendance requirements and workload. 

Those interested in taking the GED exam without any preparation instruction can do so right away but are urged to receive advising before moving forward.

Minors must bring a parent or legal guardian to enroll. A completed Compulsory Attendance Waiver is required for any student 16 or 17 years of age, prior to starting classes. The form can be furnished by the last school the student attended. If students are unable to obtain a form, they can contact the Adult Education office and a form can be sent out.
