The Center for Learning helps students succeed.

English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)

If you find yourself struggling because English is not your first language, visit the Center for Learning. We offer non-credit English classes for students who want to improve their English skills.

Choose from a variety of ESOL classes, from "basic" for students new to the language, to "advanced" for students who want to add to their English skills. Choose from weekday and Saturday in-person classes, or hybrid, online courses. Online courses feature voice recognition and language learning for specific career fields, along with the convenience of studying at your convenience - anywhere, anytime! See the Non-Credit ESOL brochure (.pdf).

In order to take non-credit ESOL classes you must first take an assessment test, and pay the non-credit class fee.
