Adult Basic Skills

 

Adult Basic Skills (ABS) is a non-credit program.

The UCC basic skills program prepares adult students to be college and career ready, to the 12th grade/high school graduation level. Instruction is offered in reading, writing, mathematics, science, social studies, critical thinking, and job skills preparation via our GED®, Skills Review, and English Language Acquisition/English as a Second Language (ELA) programs.

Students enroll in these programs to bring their skills to the college and career readiness level in order to: 

  • Prepare for the GED® exam 
  • Improve academic skills for better job prospects
  • Plan to enroll in college after a gap in education and desires to bring up skills for academic success
  • Personal satisfaction
  • Improve English communication skills (when not a native English speaker)

Any persons sixteen years or older currently performing below the high school graduation level, regardless if already have a high school diploma or GED®, is eligible to apply.

New and returning Adult Basic Skills students should contact the Woolley Center location to schedule an orientation.
