OCCC's GED & Adult General Education Classes prepare adult learners for college study, employment, and/or the GED Test. Reading, writing, math, critical thinking and general academic development are taught through a variety of means by dedicated and caring faculty. These classes also welcome pre-college students who want to improve or brush-up on skills to help them enter their chosen course of study or occupation. Adults who want to strengthen their workplace writing and/or math skills also benefit from these classes. Both day and evening classes are available, both in Newport and Lincoln City.
Note: Orientation is required before enrolling in GED & Adult General Education Classes. (Click on "Current GED Classes" link to the left for Summer orientations schedule and Summer 2015 class schedule)
Non-native English students can improve their English skills and learn American culture in our English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) classes. Anyone 16 years of age or older is welcome to attend. Orientation is not required for ESOL classes, and students can enter ESOL classes at any time. Morning and evening classes are available in Newport. .
Upon entering any class in the Basic Skills Department, students are given assessments to determine the skills and subject areas in which they need to concentrate. Students can set goals and focus attention on areas of their individual needs. There is a strong commitment to finding the best way for each individual to learn most effectively. Those who have been out of school for some time find a friendly, relaxed, and encouraging environment in which to start studying again.
