Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to get started?

Please bring a valid government issued ID to the School of Continuing Education & Professional Development - Adult Education ESOL office in Building 5, room 5130. Here you will complete paperwork and be registered to take the entrance test to determine your level of English.

After completing the paperwork you should take the test registration form to Building R, first floor to receive the schedule to take the test. Please bring this schedule with you on your scheduled test day. You will then go to the Bursar’s window in Building R to pay the pretest fee of $10. Please bring your paid receipt and the test schedule with you on your scheduled test day.

NOTE: There are a limited number of seats for the tests. These tests fill early and you may not be able to get a test scheduled at this campus for the term you wish to enter. It is suggested that you come to apply early in the current term for next term.

How do I know what level of English I will take?

First you must take the CASAS entrance test (Testing Department, Building R, 5th floor) which will determine your level of English. Remember that on that day you must bring your test registration paper and paid receipt (acquired from ESOL Room 5130), and two valid government IDs (one with picture).

You will be told your English level on the day of registration.

How do I get scheduled for a class?

Registration for classes is on a first come, first served basis. Please arrive early (no earlier than 7 a.m.) on the day of registration (information on papers provided in 5130). You will again need your valid government issued ID .  As long as there is an available class for your level, you will be registered and receive a schedule.

To be admitted to class you must present a schedule and a paid receipt for the Adult Education tuition.
