For students who are not quite ready for college level classes or who need to complete high school before taking other classes, pre-college classes are the place to start. These classes are designed to develop and improve your fundamental skills in reading, writing, and math and help ease your transition to college. Some classes also provide the curriculum needed to complete high school if that is your first goal.
Transition Program classes are designed to help students who have a goal of finishing high school and/or need to improve fundamental reading, writing, math, speaking, listening and workplace skills before taking college level classes or seeking employment. Classes are offered in face-to-face, hybrid. or totally online formats. Skills learned can help you on your college placement test and/or help you complete high school. The cost of these classes is $25 per quarter (waivers available). To enroll in these classes students must complete the Transition Programs orientation process.
For more information on Transition classes contact Transition Programs at 360-538-4167 to get started.
If you have finished high school and aren’t quite ready for college level classes additional pre-college course choices are available in reading, writing, and math. Regular tuition costs apply and students take the college placement test to help determine the appropriate starting point on the GHC English and math pathways To take the GHC Placement Test (CPT) contact the Student Support Center at 360-538-4099.
