The Adult Basic Education (ABE) program offers low-tuition classes for students whose basic reading, writing, and math skills are below ninth-grade level. These classes build basic skills that eventually lead to GED preparation. Classes are offered on the Everett campus during the morning, afternoon and evening hours, and in the evening hours at Monroe and Arlington. Classes also meet during the morning hours at Tulalip Educational Center. All students must take a placement test to determine what level they need to begin their studies.

Collegewide, students work to achieve the EvCC Core Learning Outcomes
