Becoming an ALC Student

 

Eligibility

Any adult 16 years of age and older who has not completed high school and is no longer enrolled in school can take our adult literacy and High School Equivalency Test Prep classes. For English language learners, there is no education requirement. Many of our ESOL students completed high school or some college in their native country but attend our program because they wish to improve their English language skills.

Fees

Because the Adult Learning Center is funded with state and local money, there is no charge for Adult Learning Center services. ALC services are paid for with the taxes paid by our students and other taxpayers in the community.

Waiting List

The Adult Learner Center keeps a Request for Services list. When an adult calls or visits the ALC and wants to enroll in classes, some basic contact information is requested. It is especially important that adults on the Request for Services list keep their contact information up-to-date. If we send an intake/assessment appointment postcard to an incorrect address and get no response, we contact the next person on the list. The same is true for incorrect telephone numbers.

The wait time for English classes can be long, from six months to a year depending on the class level. Wait time for placement in literacy and High School Equivalency Test Prep classes is usually six months or less.

ALC maintains a referral list of other classes at other programs in the area.  This referral list is available at the ALC office.

Persons With Disabilities

The Adult Learning Center is an Equal Opportunity / ADA Compliant Program. As long as students are able to meet ALC participation, code of conduct, and attendance requirements, they may be enrolled as students at the ALC.

If you are a person with a disability who requires accommodation to participate in any program or activity, please contact Kathleen Quinn at (508) 580-7475. Questions, concerns, or complaints regarding the American Disability Act of 1991 should be directed to Elisa Martineu at (508) 580-7535.
