Financial Assistance

  • As recently announced by the government, ABE courses are once again tuition-free (starting with the Fall 2017 semester).  Although ABE courses (with the exception of USSD 105 & 110) will now be tuition-free, 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.
