For writing, you will be asked to write an essay on a topic provided to you. You will also complete the registration process at orientation.

Fall Term ABSE classes begin Monday, September 29th, 2014. Students can also be admitted midterm to join in existing classes. See class schedule for times.

Why: This orientation places you in courses designed to prepare you to either take the GED test, the college placement tests, or to achieve other goals involving achievements in reading, writing, and math.
