We Can Help You Succeed in College

Our commitment to helping everyone access a high quality college education includes providing high-level coursework in English as a Second Language.

As part of the ESL Enrollment process, you will take the ESL Placement Assessment and speak with an ESL advisor to determine your levels of English reading, writing, listening & speaking. The Academic ESL courses will help you improve your language skills so that you are ready to succeed in your degree and certificate courses.
