Adult Basic Education – Language Arts Skills

Classes in the College’s Adult Basic Education-Language Arts (ABE)  Program are free refresher courses in reading and writing for those students whose placement test scores fall below the minimum for placement into developmental or credit courses.  Students retake the placement test after completing ABE to redetermine their placement levels for admission into higher-level developmental or credit bearing courses.


Courses are free of charge and open to only students who have applied to the College for admission yet performed slightly below the developmental education level specified on the College’s placement assessment.

Classes offered:  ABE-Language Arts Skills

Cost:  Free of charge
