High school equivalency classes develop the reading, writing and math skills needed to pass a Texas high school equivalency exam. These classes are also a great place to improve skills to move into a workforce training program at COM.

Classes begin five times a year and run for 8 weeks at a time. They are held Monday through Thursday in the morning from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. or in the evening from 6–9 p.m.* There is no charge for classes and there are no textbooks or other purchases required.

*Dates and times may vary by location
