Orientation Dates for College and Career Readiness Classes

Congratulations on taking the first step towards your educational goals! Here is some important information to help you understand our program goals and potential outcomes.

Because every student has different needs it is impossible to give a timeline of when one will finish the class. The amount of time and effort put into the program and the starting skill levels determine when an individual is ready to take the HiSET test. To make significant gains toward getting a high school equivalency diploma, it is important to attend class each session.ECC AEL logo

There is no cost associated with our program. The AEL program is free to everyone.  When you are ready to take the HISET test, there is a cost associated with it. We do not administer the test to you; we only prepare you to take the test.

Orientation Dates

All classes require an 8 hour orientation during which class requirements will be discussed and testing assessments will be given. New students must attend one of the following orientation days prior to beginning classes. A 45 minute lunch break will be provided. Students are encouraged to bring a sack lunch, snack, and a beverage. Vending machines are not available at every location.
