The Intensive English as a Second Language (ESL) Option is designed for students who's English skills are not yet ready for academic course work. This option is designed for students who need to learn English or who need to improve their English skills in order to complete college work. The Intensive ESL Option is a one or two semester immersion program and daily living skills that prepare students to take either the TOEFL or start the College Program Option at Citrus College. Students who successfully complete the Intensive ESL Program may enter the regular academic program without submitting another application. In addition, noncredit ESL classes are available to international students for free (no cost) and can help students improve their English speaking skill and pronunciation.
