For domestic students, ABE courses are once again tuition-free; however, there are still Incidental Fees (ranging from approximately $80-$450, the amount of incidental fees varies depending on the number of courses taken in the semester). There is financial assistance available to pay for incidental fees & textbooks through the Adult Upgrading Grant (AUG). The AUG is a non-repayable grant for students enrolled in upgrading programs such as Adult Basic Education (ABE), available based on a student's financial need. For more information or to fill out the AUG application form, visit the Financial Aid web page.
For international students, tuition and incidental fees apply to ABE courses.
