About Alabama’s Adult Education Program: Alabama's two-year colleges provide a vast array of programs and services for adult students in need of employment training, workforce training and education for career advancement. In many cases, these programs have been designed for special populations, including educationally and economically disadvantaged adults, individuals with disabilities, dislocated workers, single parents, and displaced homemakers.

Alabama’s adult education program provides quality adult education and literacy services to Alabamians at no cost. Adult education classes provide a second opportunity for adult learners committed to improving their academic and life skills. Instruction is based on individual student need and may range from one-on-one tutoring to group instruction. Computer-based and distance education instructional programs may be offered, as well as day and evening classes, in a variety of facilities conducive to adult learning.

The three program goals are to assist adults to:

  1. Become literate and obtain the knowledge and skills necessary for employment and self-sufficiency.
  2. Obtain the educational skills necessary to become full partners in the educational development of their children.
  3. Complete secondary school or complete the equivalent of a secondary school education.
