If you’re an adult who does not have a high school diploma, you’re not alone. You’re one of approximately one million adult New Jerseyans. Raritan Valley Community College wants to assist you in preparing for and earning a high school diploma.
Preparing for the Exam
The College offers special classes to help you prepare for the high school equivalency exam, formerly called GED. The course includes a study skills review and comprehensive instruction in all the subject areas needed to pass the test. Practice exams, pre-testing and post-testing evaluations are provided. The course is offered in the evenings and the fee is $240.
Raritan Valley Community College is an approved testing center. The State of New Jersey offers several tests for people to earn a state-issued high school diploma. The RVCC Testing Center offers the computer-based DRC/CBT Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC). The test is available in English or Spanish. The fee for taking the test is $104.
Before scheduling your test, make sure you are prepared to pass by reviewing sample questions.
Testing in English and Spanish will be conducted on May 2 & 3.
If you are taking the test for the first time you must come both days. Arrive at the Testing Center (Lower Level, Library Building) at 8:30 am. The testing fee is $104 and must be paid by money order payable to RVC College.
If you have taken the test before and want to retest, you must call the Testing Center to find out what day to test. If you have previously taken the TASC, you may retest each section up to two times without paying for the test. However you must pay a $10 administrative fee for each test.
