English Learner Services (ESL / ESOL)

The ESL Connect at Skyline College makes college possible for non-native English speakers.  We assist with:

  • Applying to Skyline College
  • Enrollment in classes
  • Support for all English Learners (Students and Non-students)
  • English Practice
  • Using resources and services on campus

We also help non-native English speakers understand every aspect of financial coaching and assistance as well as other SparkPoint services.

Enrollment in ESL classes

  • Getting Started: We help you apply, arrange your placement tests, make an appointment with a counselor, and get your orientation to college.
  • Academic Counseling: We help you pick your classes, plan your education, and prepare for a career.

Support for all English Learners – Students AND Non-students

  • Financial Aid Application Assistance: We help you fill out forms and understand all the processes.
  • Information in multiple languages: We can prepare you to understand the differences between U.S. education and education in other countries.
  • Explanation of other helpful services such as financial coaching, workplace readiness, and food assistance.

English Practice for Students AND Non-students
