Moberly Area Community College has offered free Adult Education and Literacy (AEL) classes for several decades. AEL provides a flexible classroom setting where adults who are at least 17 years of age have the opportunity to learn at their own pace. AEL offers individualized learning assistance for a variety of interests. Many students who participate in the AEL program are preparing for the High School Equivalency (HSE) test. Other students may receive instruction to brush up on their academic or everyday living skills. This program is free to the student and is funded by state and federal government.

To be eligible to enroll in classes, students must first attend orientation. To register for the next orientation fill out the form below.
