SOUTH HOLLAND, Ill. (November 29, 2022) – The South Suburban College Adult Education Department has opened registration for its free High School Equivalency (HSE/GED) and English as a Second Language (ESL) programs.

Most of the Adult Education programs are offered both full and part-time at the main campus in South Holland or at the Oak Forest Center. Daytime, nighttime, and online course options are available.
High School Equivalency and English as a Second Language
Many adults choose to further their skills and pursue high school education through the High School Equivalency program. The HSE program will develop the skills required to pass the High School Equivalency exams.

English as a Second Language allows non-native students to improve their English skills from beginning to advanced levels.
