English as a Second Language

We value diversity and want to help those that struggle with English as a first language. Review our procedures for ESL testing.

  1. Non-native speakers must complete all three sections of the Accuplacer ESL test.
  2. Students may retest in any or all sections after a wait of at least 24 hours.
  3. A second retest is permitted 30 days after the first retest.
  4. Students who do not test out of ESL courses on the second retest are encouraged to enroll in the ESL courses offered by our Continuing Education and Workforce Development department.
  5. A third and final retest may be attempted after one full spring or fall semester has elapsed since the second retest.
Note: After two years have passed since the last testing attempt, students must retest in any areas where ESL coursework was recommended and not attempted.
