This program is for students over 18 years old (See exceptions to age rule below) who have not graduated from high school. Call your local high school and ask them to give you the number of the nearest Adult School — all Adult Schools offer GED classes.

If you are interested in a particular college or school, you can also talk to someone in that school’s Financial Aid Office.
