2016-2017 SCHOOL YEAR

Online GED Software:
We offer an internet-based program for individuals to prepare for GED testing at home or in our classrooms. Please call us at 701-323-4530 to inquire about enrolling to use our online GED preparation software.





New Students:
All new potential students need to contact the ALC secretary at 701-323-4530 to find out the next available registration date. Registration for new students is held twice a month throughout the school year.

New students will do the following to enroll in classes:
1. Attend the Registration and Orientation session,
2. Take the TABE Reading and Math tests,
3. Attend an Intake session with our Coordinator, chose a schedule of attendance, and be assigned to a class.

The TABE test is scheduled for new students only after completing the Registration and Orientation session. The TABE is about three hours long and runs on a strict schedule and is by appointment only.

After the TABE test is completed, you will sign up for an Intake appointment. This is usually a day or two after the TABE test is done. This Intake Appointment is about 25 minutes long and you must be on time or you may have to reschedule. Please do not bring children to this appointment.

At the Intake appointment, you will review your TABE test results, set goals, complete paperwork, decide on your schedule, receive the start date for your classes, and ask any questions you have.

Please bring a picture ID with you each time you come to the ALC.



Returning Students:
Depending on the date you took your last TABE test, you may have to retest on the TABE. Please contact the ALC secretary at 701-323-4530 if you have questions about when you last took the TABE.

All returning students need to contact the ALC secretary to make an appointment to come in and update registration forms, complete their Intake with the Coordinator, and receive a schedule to start classes. Even if you have attended school previously, we must have updated information and TABE test scores from you before you will be allowed to start classes again.

We welcome any questions people may have about our services. If you have questions, please contact the secretary at 701-323-4530.
