About Adult Education

Start your college experience today at TCC!

The Adult Education program at Tallahassee Community College offers two exciting courses to help students earn an introductory credential along with skills to successfully enter the workforce.

Our GED preparation course prepares adults of any age to take the GED® test to earn their Florida High School Diploma. For students seeking to learn or improve their English speaking, reading, and writing, the English for Speakers of Other languages (ESOL) course is also offered.

The GED preparation course is offered during the daytime as well as convenient evening classes held at several campus locations in Leon, Gadsden, and Wakulla County. An online GED preparation course is also available for students unable to attend the course “in person”.  

ESOL Classes are held at several campus locations and most are available during the daytime, and evening.

Note: There is a $30 registration fee per term for Adult Education programs.
