Enrolling in the ESOL program takes 3 easy steps:

  1. Complete an application either online or in person at the Student Service Center (Building C, Admissions Desk)
  2. Take the ESOL placement test (Building C, Room 208)
  3. See an ESOL Advisor to register for ESOL classes

New students must take the ESOL Program's Placement Test (ESOL Accuplacer) before enrolling in a class. The test has 5 sections: listening, grammar, reading, sentence meaning, and writing. The first 4 sections are done on the computer, and the writing part is completed on paper. The test takes about 2 hours to complete and costs $29. The test is administered in the Testing Center (Building C, Room 208), a picture ID is required to take the test. 

You may register in academic ESOL courses in two ways. One way is to enroll as a credit student, and the other is as a continuing education (CE) student. Regardless of how you register, you will sit in the same class and receive the same quality instruction. Whether you register as a CREDIT student or a CE student, you must see an ESOL advisor first.
