ABE/HSE Programs

Adult Basic Education (ABE) and High School Equivalency (HSE) Programs

Welcome

Mercer County Community College offers Adult Basic Education and High School Equivalency (ABE/HSE) classes to adults who have not completed high school. This program provides an alternate way for adults to improve their basic skills, prepare for, and earn a high school diploma in an adult environment. Classes are offered in both English and Spanish.

These classes prepare an individual in the following subject areas:

  • Language Arts, Writing
  • Social Studies
  • Science
  • Language Arts, Reading
  • Mathematics

Once you pass the NJ State HSE exam, the actual diploma is issued by the New Jersey State Department of Education and states that you have met all requirements to be a high school graduate. The diploma is recognized by many employers and colleges as being equivalent to a high school diploma.

How Long Will It Take?
