Ten Terms Every Adult Education Expert Ought to Know

Any adult interested in furthering his or her education ought to become familiar with these terms:

  • GED - The term GED is an acronym for General Education Diploma. A GED can be obtained by any adult who dropped out of high school and is interested in continuing his or her education or advancing his or her career.
  • Community College - A community college may be a two-year or four-year educational institution, offering a certificate of completion. Many community colleges offer distance learning classes.
  • Trade School - Like many community colleges, trade schools often offer two-year degree programs that allow students to receive on-the-job training without spending a lot of time or energy on receiving a degree. Also like many community colleges, many trade schools offer night classes and online classes.
  • GRE - The acronym GRE stands for Graduate Record Examination. Many adult students interested in continuing their education are asked to take the GRE.
  • Language Requirement - Many colleges and trade schools insist that their students meet a foreign language requirement before being eligible to graduate. These schools typically offer many foreign languages courses to help students fulfill this requirement.
  • Literacy Requirement - Many colleges and trade schools also insist that their students pass a literacy requirement before being admitted to the institution. Coaches can be hired to help struggling students pass this requirement.
  • Diploma - Students obtain a diploma when they graduate from a college or vocational school. A diploma can be used to convince potential employers of qualifications.
  • Night Class - Night classes offer busy adults the flexibility to schedule their classes in the evenings, after they have finished work.
  • Online Class - Online classes also offer busy students flexibility in scheduling their classes.
  • Certificate - Some trade schools offer certificates in lieu of diplomas.
