South Suburban College’s Community Education Department will offer free adult basic education classes beginning Sept. 16 at SSC’s main campus, 15800 S. State St., South Holland, and at the SSC’s Oak Forest center at 16333 S. Kilbourn Ave.
Registration begins Sept. 9.
At the time of registration, students will take a placement test.
Adult basic education helps people whose skill levels are below the ninth grade by improving skills in reading, writing and mathematics.
The General Education Development program will help develop skills required to pass the GED exams for a high school diploma. Studies include language arts-writing, social studies, science, language arts-reading, mathematics and the U.S. and Illinois constitutions.
English as a second language is available for non-native students to improve their English skills from beginning to advanced levels.
An adult education student enrolling for the first time at SSC must have a current state identification or driver’s license indicating Illinois residence, withdrawal form from the high school of the current residence if younger than 18 and proof of Social Security number.
For enrollment and class information, call (708) 596-2000, Ext. 2385 or Ext. 2240, or visit www.ssc.edu and go to “Non-Credit Offerings, Adult Education.”
