Getting started is an easy process. Follow the steps below:

New students are required to complete an "Assessment Test" before registering for any ESOL classes. To schedule your Assessment Test appointment contact an assessment office on campus or call (512) 223-7451; otherwise, you will not be eligible to register. Former ESOL students register for the specific classes that you were approved to take through the ESOL Department.

Important: We will not allow students to register for classes not approved by ESOL Advisors or tested for. Former ESOL students register for the specific classes that you were approved to take through the ESOL Department. View information about receiving college-credit for your ESOL classes.
