English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)

Career Coach buttonESOL is available on the Northeast, Northwest, and Southeast Campuses.

The program consists of developmental courses in Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing for students who are non-native English speakers and want to:

  • Develop English proficiency for academic, career or personal purposes
  • Prepare to function in educational, vocational and/or personal environments requiring proficiency in English
  • Prepare to function in a multicultural, multilingual society
  • Earn an academic degree or certificate

To Enroll

  1. Meet with an academic or ESOL advisor.
  2. Complete the admissions process, including placement testing/assessment.
  3. Seek a "granted petition" from either an academic or ESOL advisor.
  4. Go to Web Advisor to register and pay for courses the same day.

Please contact an ESOL advisor for assistance with registration, if needed.

Please note:

  • Developmental courses do not earn credit and are not transferable. 
  • ESOL grades are not computed in the grade point average (GPA).
