New Students - Registering for ESOL/ESL classes can be done in three easy steps:
Complete an application. Go to the Admissions area of the Student Conference Center (SCC Building) to get help with your application. Or go here to apply online.
Take the placement test. Contact the ESOL/ESL advisor, Ita Jervis (281-312-1536, Ita.L.Jervis@lonestar.edu), to get a testing form.
See an ESOL/ESL advisor to register for ESOL/ESL classes.
New students must take the ESOL/ESL Program's Placement Test (ESOL/ESL 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/ESL classes in two ways. One way is to enroll as a CREDIT student, 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/ESL advisor first in SCC (Student Conference Center).
Below are some of the differences between the two methods of enrollment:
For students who are US citizens or permanent residents (Green Card holders). Also for students who are in the United States on certain types of visas, including the F-1 visa.
For students who are not US citizens or permanent residents (Green Card holders). Also for students who are in the US on a tourist visa.
