Adult Basic Education
Adult Basic Education is part of the Community Based Education and Workforce Development Division.
The UNM Gallup ABE program is available to those individuals not yet ready to enroll in college level courses. This includes students working on their GED ®, as well as students who already have a high school diploma or GED® and who are seeking to "refresh" themselves before enrolling in the college.
The program is FREE OF CHARGE. Individuals do not have to use financial aid money to enroll. ABE students are provided with books and materials at no cost. Students in ABE get to direct their own learning and focus on the skills and abilities most important to them.
We have many programs available to potential UNM-G students, including:
ABE: For those individuals seeking help with basic skills, literacy, and math, we offer workshops and tutoring.
GED® Prep and Testing: Prep and Testing: We offer diagnostic testing, classes and tutoring, and monthly GED® testing; upon completion, the student earns a NM high school diploma.
ESL (English as a Second Language): We offer diagnostic testing, classes and tutoring, to increase oral and written language skills during the daytime and evening classes at our UNM-G North campus location
Workplace Skills: We offer online instruction in workplace skills to help individuals find and retain employment.
Leadership Skills: Through an ABE student club, we offer students the opportunity to increase their leadership skills, travel to conferences, and plan group activities.
