The Adult Basic Education program is for individuals in need of a high school equivalency as preparation for the high school equivalency test. By achieving a high school equivalency, students enjoy personal fulfillment, the ability to continue their education at the collegiate level, and/or are able to obtain employment or advance in the workforce.

All Adult Basic Education programs are non-credit, tuition-free, and part-time for community residents.

Before attending on-campus classes, students must participate in orientation, registration, and placement testing. The high school equivalency orientation includes information about the high school equivalency program and preparation for the current test. Students can ask questions about the program as well as register for classes.

Following the orientation, students will take a placement test in reading. The results help college staff place students in classes according to your needs and ability level.

Student will need:

  • A copy of the original withdrawal letter from your high school stating your withdrawal date, if you are under the age of 19. You must bring a copy of the verification of withdrawal to registration or you will not be registered for class unless you have a letter stating that you are no longer attending high school.
