GED prep classes offered throughout summer

Hinds Community College is beginning new classes for people who aspire to finish their General Education Development (GED) high school equivalency certificate before the current test expires at the end of 2013.


Open registration dates for classes through Hinds Community College’s Adult Basic Education/GED program are as follows:


  • June 25 and July 16 at Jackson Campus-Academic/Technical Center on Sunset Drive, contact Bobby Sacus, 601.987.8150;


  • June 28 and July 19 at the Raymond Campus, Lois Barnes-Perkins, 601.857.3912;


  • June 27 and July 18 at the Vicksburg-Warren Campus, contact Cleopatra Erves, 601.629.6873.


All times are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.


The official GED test will change in 2014 and will be more difficult and more expensive. Plus, the test will move from a pencil and paper test to a computer-based test.


Those aspiring to finish their GED credential can only take the test three times in 2013 before scores on sections already passed expire and the new test is implemented on Jan. 1, 2014.


Hinds’ Adult Basic Education program also offers test dates throughout the remainder of the calendar year.


Call 601.857.3912 for more information. For a complete list of the test dates for the remainder of 2013 see the college website at
