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.
