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 3 hours.  The session includes an overview of our program, a test in listening and reading (2 hours), and placement into one of our classes.  CLICK HERE TO REGISTER FOR INTAKE / PLACEMENT   
All new students, and students who have not completed a Spring ESL class post-test, must take the placement test in order to register for an ESL class.  
Students who did not complete a Spring ESL class post-test must take the placement test in order to register for an ESL class.  If you took a class in Spring 2021 and took the end of class test in May, 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 for Fall 2021 in late July / early August.
