Non-Credit Options

English as a Second Language

The Adult Basic Education (ABE) ESL program offers low-cost courses in English as a Second Language (ESL). The goal of these courses is to help adult students improve their listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills in English. A range of leveled courses is available from Literacy level to Advanced. Other courses that the program offers are Integrated (multi-level) courses and Citizenship. Most courses meet for 15 weeks in the fall and spring and for 12 weeks in the summer term. Students usually attend classes twice a week. ESL classes are non-credit courses; students completing this program can transition to credit courses through the ESOL (credit ESL) program.
