Adult Basic Education/General Educational Development/English as a Second Language (AGE)

Welcome to the office for ABE/GED/ESL at College of DuPage. Our mission is to provide free, quality instructional programming and support services to help adults learn English and civics, improve reading, writing, math skills and prepare to pass the GED exams.

Students who successfully complete our programs acquire the skills necessary to improve employment opportunities, advance to further education or training and are more involved in their communities.

Classes are offered in more than 25 locations throughout our district. Chances are we are in your neighborhood – let us help you take that next step. Contact us at (630) 942-3697.

For Academic ESL (professionals and ELI), please call (630) 942-2047 or email liberalarts@cod.edu.
