GREAT BEND, Kan. — Barton Community College’s Center for Adult Education will soon begin another nine-week session of classes. However, orientation days are required before starting the classes. Students must attend all orientation days in-person, which will be held from 1-4 p.m. on March. 4-7. The Center for Adult Education is located at 1025 Main Street in Great Bend.

The first day of class will start on March 11 or 12, and attendance is required to complete the orientation process. Students can choose from classes that meet on Mondays and Wednesdays or Tuesdays or Thursdays.There are three class times to choose from on Tuesdays and Thursdays 8-11 a.m. or 1-4 or 6-9 p.m. There are two class times to choose from on Mondays and Wednesdays either 8-11 a.m. or 1-4 p.m.

Students will complete the required testing, learn how to navigate their account and learn about WorkReady! Students will also meet one-on-one with their instructor to discuss goals, expectations, attendance requirements and workload.

Those interested in taking the GED exam without any preparation instruction can do so right away but are urged to receive advising before moving forward.

Minors must bring a parent or legal guardian to enroll. A completed Compulsory Attendance Waiver is required for any student 16 or 17 years of age and will be provided by the Center for Adult Education at the time of sign-up.
