Registering for ESOL classes can be done in three easy steps:

  1. LSC-Kingwood ESOL ProgramComplete an application in advising located in the Student Conference Center (SCC)
  2. Take the placement test
  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 between 2 to 3 hours to complete. The test is administered in the Testing Center (SCC 223), and you must have a picture ID to be able to take the test. 

You may register in ESOL classes in two ways. One way is to enroll as a CREDIT students, and the other is to enroll 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 first see an ESOL advisor first in SCC (Student Conference Center).

Below are some of the differences between the two methods of enrollment:
