For those not seeking their high school equivalency diploma, NIACC Adult Education & Literacy offers several other options.
Math and Literacy Instruction
For adults who need reading improvement, the AEL program offers literacy tutoring and the STAR (Student Achievement in Reading) evidence-based reading program.
If you are planning to enroll in credit programs at NIACC, the AEL program can help you brush up on your math, reading, and writing skills and get a jump-start on your coursework.
Integrated Education and Training
Integrated Education and Training (IET) is a program that combines short-term career training with contextualized basic skills instruction.
