GED (General Educational Development)

The Adult Basic Education (ABE) Program at San Juan College offers instruction to adults who do not have a high school diploma, or its equivalent. We offer free non-credit classes in reading, math, writing and English as a second language. These classes help students prepare for higher education, job advancement and personal fulfillment.

The ABE program offers classes in the morning and evening in Farmington. Classes are also offered in the evening in Bloomfield, Aztec and Kirtland.

As you progress through classes the program will assist you in deciding when you are ready to take the final GED test.

The ABE program is available to assist all students who successfully complete the final GED in registering for college.

NOTE: Students under the age of 18, need to call the ABE program for further information.

There are two ways for a student to earn a GED.

If a student would like to take classes and prepare for the FINAL GED test, the student should follow these steps:

Step 1 – Attend a new student orientation with the ABE program. New Student Orientation is done on a first come, first served basis.
