ESL Enrollment

Three ESL Graduates holding diplomas

Union Adult Learning Center, operated by Union Public Schools, is a regional Adult Education program based in Tulsa and grant-funded by Oklahoma Department of Career and Technology Education.

Classes are offered in-person and virtually.  In-person class schedules are determined each year based on the interest of prospective learners. All classes offer enrollment in August and January.

If a student misses the August or January enrollment, they can add their name to our waitlist to be placed as seats become available throughout the semester.

Classes are offered free of charge.

General Information

Enrollment is by appointment only.

At the enrollment appointment, students must fill out an enrollment form and complete the TABE CLAS-E pretest.

TABE CLAS-E pretest scores help inform teachers of appropriate starting point with students. There is no pass or fail on the TABE CLAS-E test.

All interested students will be served regardless of their scores on the TABE pretests.

After 40 hours of instruction, all students will be given a TABE CLAS-E post-test to help measure educational skills gains and inform all parties on the student’s language acquisition.
