Adult Education (AED)

Need a laptop for class? Borrow one today! Harper College has Chromebooks available to be borrowed by students enrolled in the Fall semester. To borrow a laptop, fill out the Technology Request Form.

The AED department allows eligible students to take free classes to prepare for jobs in the current economy. The department operates under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).

*Important* In Spring 2021 Harper College Adult Education classes will be taught online, but students will still need to be available and connected at appointed times. This will require internet access, a computer with keyboard, web cam and microphone.
