Spring registration is well under way, thank you to all who have registered so far! Response has been very strong to our Career Education classes especially, and several of these are already full. Please visit http://turlock.asapconnected.com to see what is still available, and call the office at (209) 667-0643 if you have any questions. Classes start the week of January 22nd!



It's hard to believe that the fall semester is almost over! As things wind down, we wanted to let you know that our spring (January to May) semester will start on January 22, 2018. We will start registering for classes on January 9, 2018 and we have some good news: you will be able to register for more classes online in the spring.


Keep an eye out for our spring catalog, which will be arriving in Turlock-area mailboxes in mid-December; we will also post it here as soon as it's available.


School Visitors

Parents/guardians and other guests of the district are welcome and encouraged to visit TUSD schools. Visitors must respect the learning environment however and maintain proper behavior and decorum. (EC 51512)

Disruption of the orderly process of the school is prohibited.

A Note about CNA Classes

Turlock Adult School does not have a CNA program at this time. Unfortunately, many websites, which make money by getting people to click on their links, show that we do. They publish incorrect information and simply change the date each year. One way to spot these websites is to look at some of the other info they publish; for example, several have our address listed as 1564 Canal Drive, an address that does not even exist.

We apologize for any inconvenience or confusion this situation may have caused. Please be assured that if we do offer a CNA program again we will promote it heavily on our website and elsewhere. Please call 209-667-0643 for more information.

Welcome to Turlock Adult School

Turlock Adult School provides courses in the following program areas:

  • Adult Basic Education
  • Adult Secondary Education/High School Equivalency

DACA Information

On September 5, 2017 President Trump ordered an end to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. No first-time applications submitted after this date will be processed. The final submission date for application renewals for DACA recipients whose permits expire between September 5, 2017 and March 5, 2018 is October 5, 2017. CELA encourages all eligible DACA renewal recipients to submit their paperwork on time. All DACA statuses and work permits will remain valid until their expiration dates.


California is both sustained and enriched by immigrants – many of whom are parents of our P-12 students or are students themselves. The California Equity Leadership Alliance (CELA) – an equity-minded, action-oriented group committed to the educational success of all California students – is committed to supporting DACA recipients and their families.


There are 230,000 DACA recipients who reside in California. With the October 5, 2017 deadline for DACA renewals quickly approaching, CELA is offering resources for finding application assistance and information on financial assistance for applicants who need to renew their DACA status before the deadline. Find these tools at //acsa.org/undocumented.

Registration & Admission Requirements


Registration for adults seeking a high school diploma only: Adult high school diploma students must complete an assessment test and meet with a counselor BEFORE registering. All other students are encouraged to register online at


You may also register in person at the Turlock Adult School office, room 202, on the second floor of the District Office building. Please call 209-667-0643 or visit http://tas.turlock.k12.ca.us/ for more information.

Admission Requirements

Turlock Adult School is open to all persons 18 or older; you do not need to be a Turlock resident. In some cases, concurrently enrolled high school students may voluntarily enroll in classes required for a high school diploma; concurrent students MUST MEET WITH THEIR HIGH SCHOOL COUNSELOR for approval before being allowed to enroll in Turlock Adult School classes. The purpose of allowing concurrently enrolled students is to supplement and enrich the opportunity for qualified high school students to progress toward meeting the educational requirements for graduation from high school. Note: California Education Code mandates that adults have priority when enrolling in all courses. 

Orientation & CASAS Testing

All new students and students who have not attended Turlock Adult School prior to 2015 are required to attend an orientation session and complete a pre-enrollment test (CASAS).
