What are Basic Skills?

Basic skills classes are offered in English, English as a Second Language (ESL), reading, writing, math, learning and study skills, and critical thinking for our students who need to increase their performance to the level required for completion of college-level classes. Basic skills classes assist our students to successfully meet their academic and career goals. In support of our basic skills experiences, the Academic Skills Center (ASC) provides additional learning opportunities through the language lab, writing lab, and tutoring center.
