A GED is equivalent to a high school diploma and LCC Florence Center offers GED preparation.

GED (General Education Development)

The GED tests give those who did not graduate from high school the opportunity to earn a high school equivalency certificate. Recognized nationwide by employers and educators, the GED certificate has increased education and employment opportunities for millions of adults since 1942. Lane's GED program prepares students to pass the GED exams.

Practice testing is provided to determine readiness and assess particular areas where improvement is needed. Graduates of the GED preparation program are honored at the annual college graduation ceremony and are eligible to apply for scholarships.
