The Northwest Florida State College adult education department offers the adult basic education course, GED preparation course, and English for Speakers of Other Languages. Each adult education course is offered for a small fee of $30/semester, which includes materials and supplies. The adult education program is designed for adults who have academic skills between fourth grade and ninth grade level, those who do not have a high school diploma or those who have a primary language other than English. Special program emphasis is placed on preparing the student to become college ready. Students enrolled in adult education will receive free transition services to become college ready. These services include preparation for the college placement test, career exploration and assessment, developing a career pathway, financial aid and scholarship assistance, and career readiness skills.

Registration dates and times are the same as those for college credit students.
