Students will also be asked to complete the short online orientation class ABE 61 College and Life Skills.  This class helps students become familiar with the department, the college, the resources available for students, and the digital skills that students need to use.

Classes cost $35 per quarter.

If paying the $35 in tuition and fees will be a hardship, there is a tuition and fee waiver available.

Tutoring and mentoring services are available at the Student Success Center to support students taking ABE classes.
