Adult Learning Lab

The Adult Learning Lab is located on the Greeley campus and is open to students enrolled in our programs to come and go as they please to get the assistance they require from qualified instructors. Unlike traditional programs that have a specific end and beginning, programs that take place in the Adult Learning Lab allow students to work at their own pace on a timeline that fits into their schedule. 

Students enrolled in GED Prep or College-Boost have up to 12 months of full-access to the Adult Learning Lab for only $50.

Spanish-speaking and English-speaking instructors are available during the hours that the Adult Learning Lab is open.

In-person and Remote Access

Students have the option to study with us in-person, remotely, or a combination of both options.

Adult Learning Lab Hours 

The following days and times are when instructors are available to assist students in-person in the Adult Learning Lab and/or remotely:

Mondays through Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Fridays from 8 a.m. to noon.
