Want to earn your GED?

Every UFCW member can take GED classes for free through Essential GED.

What is Essential GED?

  • This GED program offers a customized learning plan, so you can prepare yourself to pass the GED test, regardless of how long ago you attended school.
  • The program allows you to study at your own pace from your phone or tablet as all the classes are self-guided.
  • If you are interested in participating in Essential GED, please complete and submit the form provided here.
  • Once your UFCW membership is confirmed (which may take a few days), you will receive an email explaining how to login and begin taking free online GED classes.

Currently, this benefit is only available to UFCW members and retirees.
