Adult Education

The UACCB Adult Education Department seeks to meet adult students' educational needs at the secondary level by providing instruction to those who want to earn a high school diploma through the GED program.  Basic skill instruction to prepare for college enrollment or job advancement and English as a Second Language (ESL) classes for non-English speakers are also offered through the Adult Education grants.  These grants allow all adult education classes to be offered free to the public.

Enrollment

Adult Education services are available for anyone who is at least 18 years old and not enrolled in high school. Sixteen and seventeen year old students may enroll with the appropriate documentation releasing them from high school attendance. 

Students may enroll any time throughout the year. Each student is assessed to determine strengths and weaknesses and learning plans are developed to meet educational goals. All Adult Education Classes are free and offered during day and evening hours. Classes meet in Independence and Sharp Counties.

A Distance Education Program provides online instruction to students who are unable to attend traditional classes. Students must be at least 18 years old and have internet access to enroll in the Distance Education Program.
