The Adult Education Distance Learning Program offers non-credit GED and ESL online classes. Instruction will be self-study and delivered primarily online using customized learning software. Your learning plan will be created based on your initial assessment. You will have access to the learning software for 8-12 weeks or until you’ve reached the maximum number of study hours. You should commit to studying at least 10 hours online each week. The only cost is a $20 non-refundable registration fee per access period.
