GED Preparation

Students under 18 years old wishing to enroll in GED preparation classes at LBCC have two possible options for enrollment. Both options require a meeting with their high school counselor or if home schooled, the Education Service District.

The Campus High School Program form keeps the student connected to the high school through weekly attendance and progress reports submitted by LBCC to the high school. The high school agrees to pay a prearranged fee for the student's participation in the GED preparation class and the student's GED test fee is paid for by the high school. See your high school counselor for further information.

The Exemption from Compulsory Attendance form exempts the student from mandatory school attendance (OAR 581-43-600). No attendance or progress is reported to the high school and all fees are the responsibility of the student. The exemption form can be picked up at the local school district office and needs to be signed by the parent and a high school representative.
