English as a Second Language (KESL)

Hours vary depending on student needs.

The School of Applied Technology offers four levels of ESL instruction leading to vocational training or college level classes. A placement test is given to determine the level at which a student should begin. Placement tests are arranged at the time students seek to register for the program. ESL classes include intensive academic English practice in reading, writing, listening, speaking, grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation.

International Students

International students (students on a nonimmigrant visa) must complete the International Student Application for Admission through the International Student Services before being able to enroll.
