Community Outreach and Education
The office of Community Outreach and Education at Oklahoma City Community College provides short-term, non-credit courses designed to improve basic skills for adults, senior citizens and children. Our College for Kids is a dynamic year-round educational program for children. Subject groups include music, drama, science, math, language, arts and crafts, reading, writing and ACT® test preparation workshops that will review terminology, concepts and test-taking tips.
The Adult Learning Center provides free General Educational Development (GED) and English as a Second Language (ESL) classes to community members throughout the Oklahoma City Metro Area. Classes meet twice a week for six hours. Morning, afternoon and evening classes are available. Students must be at least 16 years old and attend a new student orientation prior to enrollment.
Some of our classes are designed to improve basic skills, while others are just for fun. No pressure and no exams. Our adult and senior citizen personal enrichment classes allow students to learn with other interested adults about dance, language, computers and music. These non-credit classes are offered free or at a low cost in various locations throughout the year. All adults are welcome ages 18 and up.
Community Outreach and Education is dedicated to the belief that lifelong learning helps adults acquire the knowledge, skills, and values needed to lead productive and satisfying lives. We are always looking for suggestions on what classes to offer. If you have a suggestion or would like to share your skills by teaching a non-credit course, please contact the Community Outreach and Education Office at 682-7859, 682-7873.
