There is a new program at Lewis & Clark Community College in Godfrey that lets students get their GED while also earning college credit. The GED to College Fair is scheduled for a week from today, July 18 in the Advanced Technology Center in the Trimpe Building from 10am-noon. The fair is open to anyone, and light refreshments will be served.
Kim Schweiker, Transition Coordinator for the program, explains how the program works.
She says you should not let cost scare you away. The GED classes are free, and she says they will work with you to find grants, scholarships, and other funding sources you may be eligible for.
