eLearn Frequently Asked Questions
How do the online classes work?
Just like the Adult Education classes that take place on our campus, all students will take a placement test to determine their academic level. After completing the placement tests, eLearn students will complete all coursework online. All you have to do is complete weekly requirements in order to remain in good standing. This means you are able to create your own schedule and work when it's convenient for you.
How much does the eLearn course cost?
It's absolutely free!
How many hours per week do I need to study?
You should plan for about 3-5 hours per week.
Can I join the program if I only have a mobile device?
While there will be many ways to connect to our online classes using a mobile device, you will also need a computer (laptop or desktop) with internet access in order to complete some of the math and writing coursework. Because of this, only students with reliable computer and internet access will be allowed into the eLearn program.
What if I have a question or encounter a problem? Is there an instructor available to help me?
YES! You will actually be enrolled in a course with other students and an instructor that you can contact as needed. You will be able to chat and email with your fellow classmates, and your instructor will always be available by chat, email, phone, and video conferencing! And, your instructor and coach will be checking in with you on a regular basis to help you stay focused and motivated. So, even though the courses are online, you will have a lot of support available to you including your classmates and our eLearn instructors and coaches.
How long does the program take to complete?
This question is tough to answer since every student is unique, and it also depends on how much effort you put forth. You will have a better idea of how ready you are to take the HiSET exam once you complete the placement testing process. Your coach will help you understand your test scores and work with you to set short and long term goals. Remember, eLearn is always free; so regardless of how long it takes you to get fully prepared for the exam, you can stay in the program as long as you want!
How do I apply?
You can apply for eLearn anytime throughout the year. The first step is to submit an online form. You will enter basic information about yourself and submit. All applicants will be sent an email letting them know if they are accepted into the next available class.
