High School Equivalency (formerly GED)

Dutchess Community College has established a series of seminar-based programs for individuals who wish to improve their job opportunities by earning their high school equivalency (HSE) formerly known as general educational development (GED).

Emphasis will be on improving writing and math skills using creative thinking and problem-solving strategies.
