High School Equivalency Preparation

NOTICE:

March 31, 2020

Letter to GED Students,

The COVID-19 pandemic emergency has significantly impacted all of our lives. Wes Watkins Technology Center is committed to the safety of our students and staff during this trying time and we are following executive orders and CDC guidance. The COVID-19 pandemic is causing all of us to drastically alter our normal activities. Making these difficult decisions, we believe, is simply the right thing to do for our students, our staff, and our community.

GED classes have been cancelled for the Spring semester. I encourage you to continue studying and preparing for the HISET exam from home. GED students may continue to work on their AZTEC learning site and HISET books. If you have questions email me at twalling@wwtech.edu or call 405-452-5500 and give the receptionist your name and phone number. I will return your call. 

Books may be picked up by appointment only. If you need a book, contact student services at 405-452-5500 to arrange pickup time and instructions.
Stay healthy and safe,

Troy Gayle Walling,
GED Instructor

 

WWTC offers High School Equivalency classes - HiSET - during the school year for individuals who did not complete high school and would like to obtain a high school equivalency diploma, formerly called the GED.

Classes are held every Monday and Tuesday from 4:30 PM to 7:30 PM and run from October through May. There is no tuition charge for the class and there is no set class length. Students work at their own pace. Enrollment is ongoing, so individuals may enroll anytime throughout the year by calling 405-452-5500.

The classes are offered through OSU Institute of Technology of Okmulgee and will be instructed by Troy Gayle Walling.

REQUIREMENTS
1. Must be a resident of Oklahoma.
2. Students must maintain good attendance or be subject to dismissal from the class.


WHAT ARE THE HIGH SCHOOL EQUIVALENCY EXAMS?
Even though you have not finished high school, you have probably gained knowledge and skills through experiences, reading, and job training. The high school equivalency exams are designed to measure the important knowledge and skills, usually learned during four years of high school, that you may have obtained in a different manner.

The Oklahoma legislature passed House Bill 1687 and Gov. Mary Fallin signed the bill into law in June 2015 allowing all federally approved testing companies to offer high school equivalency exams in Oklahoma. To date, three tests are offered in Oklahoma: the GED, HiSET and TASC. Each test gives the examinee the ability to receive an Oklahoma high school diploma.

Wes Watkins Technology Center is a testing site for the HiSET Exam.
