Keep the good work! Please read carefully the information below.

Congratulations! Keep working on your education! We want to help you accomplish your academic goals. All students who plan to continue for the next semester should  to secure their spot and avoid the extra fee.

To re-register, you will received an email with all the information and link for payment as your class ends. But in summary, we need your:

    1. PAYMENT: Reenroll in the reenrolling period, which is usually before your classes end and the following week. This will secure your spot, get you a significant discount, and make your transition to the following semester automatic.
    2. KEEP YOUR PARTICIPATION: you should successfully finish your class with at least 80% class participation and at least 80% online material to avoid being dropped out during the class term.

The tuition per semester is $120, pero si hay donaciones, podemos darte un descuento de $20 si te reinscribes a tiempo. 

Important: We normally would have to charge extra $30 to those students who miss re-enrollment and reenter the program after the deadline. It requires extra resources to process each student separately while differentiating from new students. If possible, we try to waive this, but it is best if you enroll on time to avoid fees and save. 

The reason we can offer this low tuition is because of the help we receive from our sponsors and donors. Please remember we want to help you to be successful and we hope one day you can help the Centro to educate other Hispanic young adults.

Books and materials are not included in the tuition, but they can be purchased at cost from the Centro Hispano Marista at registration. The cost of books/material depends on the format. For online material, the cost is $30 per session.

Note that you will still have to pay for the GED® test through an official GED® Testing Center in the state of Georgia. We suggest you take the test immediately after passing the GED Ready® at the Centro Hispano Marista. This is your responsibility. The cost for each of the 4 subject tests taken separately is $46 ($48 online version)You could get the GED Ready and GED tests for free if you qualify for the HOPE scholarship in the state of Georgia and apply for it. For more info, go to When you pass any of those exams, please let us know and send us a copy or picture of your results at or via text at (770) 742-9090 to update your records.

We know you are busy, but we want you to graduate! Please review our expectations.

Our program offers you a second chance to get your GED® certificate equivalent for high school education. To increase your success probability, you must commit to attend all 2-hour weekly classes (on time, punctuality counts towards your participation). Also, you will need to work on your own for at least 6+ hours a week on your homework and building your knowledge. We encourage our students to develop self-study skills and practice concepts learned in class. Use the summer and other breaks to advance!

Attendance to classes alone will not be enough to pass the GED® exam.

If you miss classes without a legitimate excuse, or you do not work on homework, or you are constantly arriving late, you risk being dropped from the program at any time. We want to give the opportunity to those students who do commit to graduate.

*If you are a Centro Hispano Marista DACA student, you won’t want to become a dropout. We do not and cannot renew letters for students who have withdrawn or were dropped from our program. Ask your lawyer about the repercussions. You do not want to be left out.

We want to give the opportunity to all potential students who want to pass the GED®, and due to capacity restrictions and to respect to our teacher volunteers, we do need to set a time limit for classes. We determined that you should not take more than 3 semesters to pass a module (very few exceptions apply). We will offer every opportunity for you to succeed, but it is up to you to put the effort. This is why we stress the importance of studying outside your classes since the very beginning.

We can help you pass the exam, but it is your decision to modify your lifestyle and work on your education to do so. We want you to succeed.
