The University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton’s Adult Education Center in Clinton will once again offer classes for GED® students beginning in July. The center—located at the North Central Career Center at 100 Success Drive—will offer both daytime and evening classes.

Classes at UACCM Adult Education are free of charge, and classrooms are stocked with textbooks for students’ use. Various programs offered at the center include adult basic education, Career Readiness Certification, English as a Second Language, college prep, and Workforce Alliance & Growth in the Economy (WAGE™) — a series of stackable certifications in partnership with local businesses and industries to prepare participants for workforce careers. 


After completing the GED® program, students also have scholarship opportunities available to attend UACCM. The GED® Achievement Scholarship is a tuition waiver for up to 15 credit hours for GED® graduates with a GED® score of 640 or higher. The GED® Opportunity Scholarship is a 3-credit-hour tuition waiver awarded to incoming freshman who completed their GED® at an adult education center in Arkansas. 


Students gaining their GED® often have greater income mobility, according to studies by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. For workers with a GED® in all occupations, their median annual wage can increase by over 50% to a median income nationally of over $36,000. With an associate’s degree, the national median annual wage is $52,000. 


UACCM Adult Education Centers serve anyone 18 years of age or older. Interested students are encouraged to schedule an appointment to learn additional information by contacting Erica Freeman at (501) 745-6554 or at freeman@uaccm.edu.
