Adult English for Speakers of Other Languages Intake Testing and Registration

All new students need to take an intake test before registering for a class. Find testing dates and locations here.

The Adult ESOL Program offers 4 instructional terms a year. Classes start in September, January, and April. Each term is 10 weeks.  We also have one 6-week term in the summer that starts in July. Students can start at the beginning of any term.

New students must take a placement test. We test students’ reading, writing, listening and speaking skills to determine the appropriate class for them.

To register, please follow these steps:

Placement Testing and Registration:

  1. Choose a location.
