NMSU-Carlsbad opes enrollment for GED and ELA courses

NMSU-Carlsbad has opened enrollment for two free adult education courses.

Registration for GED and ELA courses continues until Oct. 13.

Classes begin Oct. 17.

Enrollment for these two opens every eight weeks.

Adult education director Bertha Jasso says the courses specifically apply to people 18 and older.

She tells the Current-Argus that they have no age limit, as a 73-year-old woman earned her GED through the program in 2009.

Jasso says 70 percent of the people enrolled in ELA come from Mexico and South America.
