About the Adult Education Center

General Topics:

Who May Enroll?

All adults over the age of 18 are welcome to attend classes if they are legal residents of Arkansas and are not attending grades K-12 in a public or private school. High School Equivalency (GED) classes are open to anyone over 18 who has not completed high school or obtained a GED. In special circumstances, a 16- or 17-year-old may be allowed to enroll in the GED program.

What is the Cost?

There is NO COST for classes offered by NWACC Adult Education. For some classes, there may be a small charge for books or other materials (generally not over $20 per student), but all adult education classes are FREE OF CHARGE.

When are Classes Offered?

Adult education services are offered year-round, with both daytime and evening classes during the academic year. Students may enroll at any time, study at their own pace, and complete the course when they reach their personal goals. Instructors work with each student individually in a relaxed atmosphere. Computer-assisted instruction is also available at various times.
