E-mail Print PDF

The Adult Education and Family Literacy Department at Paris Junior College has upgraded their distance learning software and now offers additional options for online classes. Additionally, a fast track course has been set for General Education Development (GED) that allows completion of the class in half the normal time.


Online GED and English as a Second Language classes still have an in-person testing requirement. The fast track GED option allows a student to take four hours a day, four days a week and complete the class in six weeks. Normally, classes are three hours a day, three days a week and require two six-week sessions to complete.

As always, attending a registration session is mandatory to complete the paperwork and testing to assure they are in the correct GED or ESL classes.

The GED registration session will be held at PJC–Sulphur Springs Center, 1202 West Houston St., from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, May 10.

The English as a Second Language registration session will be held on Friday, May 24, at 5 p.m. at the PJC–Sulphur Springs Center.

All classes are offered at no cost to the student. However, students must commit to attend class each day and meet program requirements to accomplish learning goals. All students must complete a baseline and progress test and adhere to attendance policy rules and department requirements. Sixteen-year-olds must be court ordered and submit a copy of this document prior to the first class day.

Seventeen-year-old students must submit a copy of a school withdrawal form from the last school attended prior to the first class day. Seventeen-year-olds may also be court ordered to attend GED classes at Paris Junior College. Parents or guardians of 16- or 17-year-old students must complete release form information prior to the first day of class.
