Attend a Welcome Session at WEOC – 26 South Broadway – Yonkers, NY.
Sessions are held Tuesdays at 5:00 pm (en Español), Wednesdays at 11:00 am and Thursdays at 4:30pm. For ESOL: Tuesdays at 11:00 am, Thursdays at 5:30 pm
Expect the following:
- To learn about SUNY WEOC – an overview that covers program offerings and eligibility will be provided.
- To take a basic assessment test – All program candidates (except ESOL) will take the Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE) Locator. The Locator is a brief test in reading, math and language arts which is used to determine which level of the TABE we should administer to you during formal testing. The BEST test will be administered to ESOL applicants.
- To submit copies of your eligibility documents (remember to bring them with you: the Admissions staff will review the documents during the session and inform you if further documentation is needed).
- To complete an online application (if you have not yet done so).
You will be given an appointment to take the TABE test, which can take up to 3 hours depending upon the program of choice. Your test results will usually be provided to you by the next day. Our admissions staff will discuss next steps or other options with applicants who do not achieve the necessary score for enrollment at the WEOC. Resources in our ATTAIN may be available to help you strengthen your math and/or reading skills and prepare to re-take the TABE exam in order to obtain the necessary TABE score when you retest.
Please note: Children are not allowed in the testing room!
The Admissions office will notify you regarding your eligibility by phone or email. Next, you will meet with a counselor who will assess your level of interest as well as your needs, describe the academic challenges and the schedule of your program, and respond to any concerns you may have.
PLEASE NOTE: HAVING YOUR FILE APPROVED IN ADMISSIONS ONLY MAKES YOU ELIGIBLE FOR OUR PROGRAMS…ONLY A COUNSELOR CAN MAKE A DECISION TO ADMIT AND ULTIMATELY ENROLL YOU IN A PROGRAM.
The counselor will then decide whether to admit you to the program.
