Does a person get a GED when they complete the class? If your answer is no, then my answer is no.

The class has to be towards an academic degree. Probaly ESOL wont qualify.

No. You will need to have a high school diploma or GED to qualify for DACA. - Disclaimer: This a general answer to your legal question. Unless you have a signed engagement letter with me, you should not consider this information to be legal advice.
