Welcome to the Zack Hamlett / AEL Center - Building 5

Urban's Zack Hamlett / Adult Education and Literacy (AEL) Center offers academic and support services to students who seek a High School Equivalency Diploma (HiSED) or a high school diploma. Any person who is 17 or older can enroll in Adult Basic Education (ABE), high school completion (HiSET), or high school diploma (HSD), depending on skill level and what is best for each student. Students will receive counseling/advising services when they first enroll. Their skills will be assessed, and they will be placed into appropriate study programs that will challenge, but not overwhelm them.
