Adult Education and Literacy Services

Georgia Northwestern Technical College’s Adult Education Programs are designed specifically for adults with their unique educational and skills requirements. Our adult learning centers can prepare an individualized program of study or class instruction based on an assessment of skills levels in reading, social studies, science, writing skills, and mathematics. There are also classes for English Language Learners (ELL). Preparation courses for the General Educational Development® (GED®) Tests for high school equivalency are also available.

Adults of all ages, age 18 and older, can participate in day or evening programs which are tuition free. (Underage youth, 16 and 17, who are officially withdrawn from school can participate only with special permission from their parents/guardian and from the Office of Adult Education.) All enrollees receive an educational evaluation and information on how to achieve their personal learning goals.

The learning centers have professional adult education instructors and the latest materials and educational technologies to help students move quickly into their future technical education, job training, or employment.
