Union County Adult Education

Making a Difference in Your Community: Union

At Union County Adult Education, students improve their lives every day.  Each student has a different reason for starting in adult education and a different goal.  Every day, we help students:

  • Earn their GEDs or high school diplomas
  • Complete WIN Career Readiness Certificates
  • Dual-enroll in employment training
  • Improve reading, writing, and math skills

Union County Adult Education is offering online classes! 

Monday-Wednesday from 9am-Noon and 5-6:30pm.  


Students also have access to an online software that is available 24/7. To get started:

You have the option of testing on-campus or remotely.  If you test on-campus, then you will need to wear a mask and maintain six feet of distance the entire time that you are on-campus.  If you test remotely, then you will need a laptop (not a smartphone or tablet), reliable internet, a microphone, and a web camera.  You can check if your technology is compatible with TABE software by accessing their demo site.

After you complete your TABE test, our College and Career Navigator will reach out to you to schedule your one-on-one orientation.  In this orientation, you will review your test results, learn about the program, and plan for your future education and career. 

  1. Offerings

    High School Credential

    We have two options if you want your high school credential: GED and diploma.  For the GED track, you must complete all four subtests of the GED test.  For the diploma track, you must complete the 24 units required by Union County Schools.  Both tracks result in your high school credential, accepted by community colleges and employers.  If you aren’t sure which track to pursue, we can help you decide.

    For the GED track, you will take classes geared towards the GED subject tests: mathematics, science, social students, and language arts.  We will monitor your progress through TABE testing and help you decide when you’re ready to take your GED test.

    For the diploma track, we will evaluate your transcript to see which high school units you have remaining.  You will complete most of your classwork online through Odysseyware.

    We require that you come on campus 5 hours per month, but we always encourage you to come more often for additional support.

    Dual-Enrollment

    While working on your high school credential, you can also earn a career certification.  We currently offer dual-enrollment in welding, mechatronics, and construction.

    Career Readiness

    As part of your classes, you will improve your employability skills, too.  These skills are vital in getting a job or getting a better job.  We regularly offer testing for your WIN Career Readiness Certificate, which many employers and programs now require.

    Skill Improvement

    Students have different reasons for wanting to improve their skills, from needing a refresher before taking a college placement test to wanting to help their children with homework.  Whatever your reason, we can help if you need to improve yours.  Even if you already have your high school credential or are not interested in pursuing it, you can still work on improving your literacy skills.

  2. Resolving Barriers

    Fees

    Our courses are free.

    GED does charge a testing fee – it is $37.50 per subject.  We can provide you with a voucher covering the

    entire testing fee if you are a current student who meets attendance and testing requirements.

    Scheduling

    To succeed, you must commit to your education.  We expect for you to attend class, but we also understand that you have other responsibilities.  We offer our classes throughout the day and evening and have hybrid options, too.

    Accommodations

    If you have a documented disability, you can request accommodations for your classes and TABE testing.

    GED must approve accommodations for all GED testing.  You can apply for GED accommodations online at any time, but you should allow at least 6 weeks.  You can find information on GED accommodations here.

    Resources

    If you have something preventing you from coming to class, please let us know.  For many barriers, we can refer you to one of area partners who can help.  Depending on your circumstances, our partners can help you with everything from transportation to childcare.
