Adult Basic Education Programs

     Classes are offered to students who have not completed high school and desire to improve their skills in mathematics, reading, and writing. This program is designed to remedy basic skills deficiencies and prepare students for the GED test. Individualized instruction is provided. Classes are open-entry, open-exit. Day and evening classes are provided at several locations throughout the college district each semester. Tuition and fees for these classes are waived, and classroom materials are provided.

General Education Development (G.E.D.)
     The Shawnee Community College GED Program offers assistance to students in acquiring the knowledge and skills necessary to pass the GED examination for a high school equivalency diploma.

Adult Literacy Program
     The Shawnee College Adult Literacy Experience (SCALE) provides reading instruction for adult learners who need to increase their reading skills utilizing volunteer tutors in one-to-one, classroom or group settings. Students are initially assessed to build an individualized program for their particular needs. Tutors are trained in multiple teaching strategies that allow them to guide students with diverse learning styles. Literacy activities focus on improving the adult learner's reading and math skills as well as increasing their community awareness and increasing their ability to explore further educational opportunities.
SCALE needs volunteer tutors and adult learner referrals. Contact Pam O'Connor at SCC to refer a learner or to become a volunteer, remember volunteers change lives.

Community Education Programs
     The Shawnee Community College Community Education Program is dedicated to the philosophy of promoting lifelong learning.
The college offers non-credit community education courses as a special service to the residents of the Shawnne Community College district. Classes are offered to assist individuals to take advantage of leisure time, improve mental and/or physical fitness and learn a new skill. A student who plans to register only for community education courses does not need to apply for regular admission.
