What is the difference between EAP and ESOL courses?

EAP (English for Academic Purposes) is a program for students that want to earn academic credits toward pursuing a certificate or a degree at Miami Dade College.   ESOL (English as a Second Language) is a non-credit course for students who want to learn English for non-academic purposes.
