Math, English, Reading

The Adult Basic Education and High School Equivalency (ABE/HSE) program supports academic remediation in reading comprehension, mathematics, and language skills and provides pre-college instruction. Classes are offered for free throughout Buncombe and Madison counties for adult students to build their basic skills.

If you have been referred to Basic Skills after taking the Accuplacer college placement exam, you will need to meet with a Basic Skills staff member for advising. Bring your Basic Skills referral form with your Accuplacer scores to the Hemlock Building Room 303, or call (828) 398-7132 to schedule an appointment with Peggy Hustad. She will review your scores and discuss how the Basic Skills Program can help you improve your skills. She can also help you register for the Independent Study Lab or classes appropriate for your level. Once you have improved your skills and demonstrated (by a re-test on the TABE) that your new learning reaches the goals set by admissions, you will be referred back to Student Services to register for college classes.

For more information, students may call (828) 398-7132 or visit room 303 at the Hemlock Building on the Asheville Campus, or visit the Haynes Building at the Enka Site or the Ramsey Building at the Madison Site.
