We have two different ESL options to help you. Look at the questions below to decide which one is best for you.
  • Did you graduate high school in the United States?
  • Are you an advanced student of English?
  • Have you finished the Non-Credit ESL option (Advanced IEP or Level 4.5)?
  • Do you want to obtain an associates or bachelor's degree?

If you answered yes to three or more of the questions above, we recommend that you start with the Credit ESL Program.

If you didn't answer yes to three or more questions above, we recommend that you start with the Non-Credit ESL Program. This option is for beginning to intermediate students of English.

If you are an international student, visit the international student section.

If you are still not sure which option would be best for you or if you have questions, please contact an advisor who will be able to help you.
