Admissions: ABE and GED
Adult Learning Center Osceola programs are open to individuals who are 18 years of age or older. Applicants seeking enrollment into one of ALCO's programs must take a placement test, pay for registration, and pay for tuition.
Step 1: Registration and Tuition
Persons enrolling for classes should do so at the ALCO Main or Poinciana campuses. Please have a photo ID when enrolling. Enrollment in classes is based on space availability, so it is important that you register prior to the start of the class.
Total cost is $70.00 for a first time student for one semester. Included in the total cost is a $25.00 placement test fee, $15.00 registration fee, and $30.00 tuition fee. Continuing students tuition cost is $45.00 for one semester.
NO REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN TO STUDENTS WHO VOLUNTARILY WITHDRAW FROM THE CLASS IN WHICH THEY HAVE ENROLLED. You will be notified only if the class you want is full or cancelled due to insufficient enrollment.
Step 2: Placement Test
New students will need to take the placement test, which consists of reading, language and math skills, and is used to determine the prior knowledge of students. While there is no pass or fail, you should try to do your best so you are placed in the proper level of classes. The test will take about 2 hours to complete. More information and practice is available here. After the placement test has been completed, you will be asked to make an appointment to attend the New Student Orientation and complete the registration process.
Step 3: New Student Orientation
During orientation, you will receive a copy and explanation of your placement test scores. You will also learn what to expect when you begin your classes, what ALCO has to offer, and all about the GED test. Your counselor will be there to help you plan your schedule and you will also receive your student identification card and parking permit.
*The costs for the student identification card and parking permit are included in the registration fee.
