Adult Basic Education (ABE)

Adult Basic Education (ABE) is a free refresher program in reading and writing for those students whose College placement test scores fall below the minimum for placement into developmental or credit courses. Students retake the College’s placement test after completing ABE to re-determine their placement levels for admission into higher-level developmental or credit-bearing courses.

This program is a vital component of the city’s emphasis on literacy and transitioning into postsecondary education.
