Drake State Community and Technical College Adult Education Program offers FREE Adult Basic Education, Adult Secondary Education, and General Educational Development (GED) Classes focused on assisting our students in obtaining the knowledge and skills required for self-sufficiency and employment. Classes are designed to be open-entry open-exit. Our official requirements for entry are listed under Participation Requirements.
