Online registration is required for the Intake and Placement Test sessions.  Students must register in advance and will receive email confirmation of their enrollment in the session.  The Intake and Placement Test session lasts approximately 2.5 hours.  The session includes a test in listening and reading (2 hours), and placement into one of our classes.
Registration for the Spring 2023 Semester is now closed, with the exception of Citizenship and Beginning Literacy Classes. If you are interested in joining ESL classes in August 2023, please register for the waitlist here: 
All new students, and students who have not completed a class post-test, must take the placement test in order to register for an ESL class.  
Students who did not complete a class post-test must take the placement test in order to register for an ESL class.  If you took an ESL class and a post test, then you do not need to take another test.  If you are a returning student, do not create another account in our online system.  If you do not remember your log in information, please request a password reset or contact our office for assistance.  We will email you with your enrollment after you test or before class starts.
