We offer intensive academic prep courses designed to prepare students, whose first language is not English, for college-level work in degree programs.
Students who take the College Placement Test (CPT) and place into pre-college courses are eligible for the ESL for Academic Purposes Program. They may place into Semester One or Semester Two. An ESL Advisor is available at each of the College's three campuses to advise and assist students.

Students may take the full sequence of classes or they may take only those for which they demonstrate or experience a need. Courses are prescribed according to placement test scores; not all courses may be required and students may be encouraged to take courses in appropriate academic disciplines to augment their course schedules.
