The University of Texas at El Paso is currently accepting applications for their free GED classes and testing for agricultural workers and their immediate families online due to the coronavirus.

The University of Texas at El Paso is working around the novel coronavirus to conduct its annual High School Equivalency Program. Seasonal farmworkers along with their families are encouraged to take advantage of this free GED program at UTEP so they can acquire their High School Equivalency Program available both in English and Spanish.

The High School Equivalency Program is available and provided free of cost and is designed to meet the special needs of migrant and seasonal farmworkers in pursuit of the High School Equivalency Certificate. The objective of the program is to assist these students in the preparation and successful completion of the exams. Another advantage is that this high school equivalency program provides assistance and an opportunity for placement in universities, colleges, junior colleges, and vocational institutions, military services, including career positions that are funded by the U.S. Department of Education.

Due to the pandemic, these courses will be held virtually instead of the classroom.

Open Enrollment and the class courses will take place Monday through Thursday – schedules vary and classes will be conducted via Zoom videoconference.
