Adult Basic Education
ABE courses are available for adults who are at least 18 years of age and wish to improve their reading, writing, and math skills. ABE students perform below the high school level on placement tests. Adult Basic Education courses are designed to prepare students to move into the Adult High School Diploma (AHSD) or General Educational Development (GED) programs.

These free courses are held at the Durham Technical Community College Main Campus, at the Orange County Campus, and at other sites throughout Durham and Orange counties. Registration is open until each course meets its maximum enrollment. For information about courses and a complete course schedule, please call 919-536-7218, ext. 3003.

All new students at the Orange County Campus, Chapel Hill Skills Development Center, and other Orange County locations must take a placement test and complete a brief orientation prior to registering for courses.
