Distance and Online Options

All Academic & Career Readiness distance students must be able to complete initial placement testing and fill out registration forms, as well as to complete periodic academic progress testing.

Adult Basic Education (ABE), English Language Acquisition (ELA), and High School Equivalency (GED® and HiSET®) classes are available online

Students who qualify may take courses online from any computer with Internet access. Online courses are ideal for those whose schedules or physical limitations make it difficult to attend class in a regular classroom setting. Students who do not have access to a home computer may use the computers in our Academic Skills Lab, in our Learning Resources Center, or in any of the public libraries in Alamance County as well as community resource centers. Computers may be used on a space-available basis at these locations.

HSE in the Community is another flexible option for students who need or want to study from home. Participants complete a series of 10 lessons through the mail in postage paid envelopes. Students are expected to mail in lessons weekly and to come to ACC’s campus for progress testing, practice and official GED® or HiSET® tests.  Instructors return each lesson corrected and offer tutoring through the phone and in person.

Lesson 1 is available for pick up in various locations throughout Alamance County (including McDonald’s, Goodwill, and Social Services), can be mailed directly to your home, or printed out and completed.   It is also published in the Burlington Times-News through the HSE-in-the-Newspaper program four times a year.  New students must mail in a completed Lesson 1 before attending an orientation for HSE in the Community.  For more information, contact Kathryn Porter at (336) 506-4379.

ELA programs are also available through distance education. We offer various online options. Students are expected to come to campus at least three times during the course, but the majority of the work is completed at home. Weekly contact with the instructor is expected via telephone, e-mail, or drop-in office hours for all distance courses. Students who are motivated to work independently are encouraged to participate.  Call (336) 506-4380 or email ESOLIntake@alamancecc.edu to enroll today.
