43 earn GED through FLCC

17 graduates in blue caps and gowns
Several GED recipients attended a graduation ceremony at the main campus in June.

Forty-three students completed a general equivalency diploma (GED) over the last year through the free program at Finger Lakes Community College.

FLCC’s program allows students to work at their own pace with an instructor to prepare for the four exams necessary to earn a high school equivalency diploma. Students take in-person assessments in math and reading to gauge their skill levels.
