Great! We will find the right place in one of our English courses.

There are a few exceptions. We will explain those to you in person.

How Do I start?

The first step is to take a test to find out where your English language studies should begin.

What should I bring to the test?

  • Picture identification, such as a Passport / Visa*
  • Social Security Card (if you have one)
  • Green Card / I-94 (if you have one)

*Non-immigrant visa holders in categories such as B1/B2 (tourist visa), J or F (student visa) cannot be served in this program. Other visa exclusions may apply.
