To get started you must first attend the informational seminar which is held twice a month on Fridays. We discuss how the program works and what your next steps will be. If you decide that our program is a good fit for you we will sign you up for orientation.
Orientation is held twice a month on Mondays following the informational seminar in Building 551, Room 135 from 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. During orientation, we will help you fill out the enrollment forms and have you take your CASAS assessment. After orientation you will be placed in our Success Academy which will be that Tuesday-Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in building 559 room 152. In the Success Academy you will learn the skills to help you succeed in your classes. At the end of the Success Academy we will place you in your HSE/ESL classes.
The CASAS assessment is a tool used to help us understand your educational/ English speaking abilities. It is not pass/fail. We use your scores to determine what class level would be appropriate for you. You will take the CASAS assessment after you have completed your enrollment paperwork. After you have completed your first assessment, our office will then review your scores to determine which class will suit you best. We will try to accommodate your preferred schedules when placing you in class.
