OCCC's GED & Adult General Education Classes prepare adult learners for college study, employment, or the GED Test.
Reading, writing, math, critical thinking, and general academic development are taught through a variety of means by
caring and dedicated faculty. These classes also welcome pre-college students who want to improve or brush-up on
skills to help them raise their college placement (COMPASS) test scores and enter their chosen course of study or occupation.
Adults who want to strengthen their workplace writing or math skills also benefit from these classes. Additionally, parents who
want to better help their children and teens with schoolwork find these classes helpful. Day and evening classes are available,
both in Newport and Lincoln City.
Note: A 2-Session Orientation is required before enrolling in GED & Adult General Education Classes. Orientation consists
of assessments in reading, math and writing to determine the areas in which each student needs to focus; information about
the GED Test; general information about the College (services, resources, and programs it offers); class policies; and provides
plenty of time for questions and answers. It's also an opportunity for those who are unsure about attending class to get more
information in a friendly and comfortable setting. Orientations for Winter Term have ended. The next class orientations meet
the week of March 28. Click on CURRENT GED CLASSES link at top left of this page for the next orientation schedule.
Upon entering any Basic Skills Class, students are given assessments to determine the skills and subject areas in which they
need to concentrate. Students can then 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 will find a relaxed, friendly, and encouraging environment in which to start studying again.
ESOL CLASSES - Non-native English students can improve their English skills and learn American culture in our English for
Speakers of Other Languages 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 at
