Academic Readiness, Career & Community Institute : Our Programs

Our Programs

English as a Second Language (ESL)
Learn to speak, read and write English through our free courses that focus on conversation and beginning grammar. We will assess and place you in a class that best fits your needs. One of our counselors will also monitor your progress and help you transition into higher level credit ESL classes on campus.
For further information, contact the Department of Global Languages and Society (Essential ESL Program).
 GED®​ Preparation
Pass your GED® test today. We offer free preparation classes. The General Education Development  GED® certificate is widely accepted as an equivalent to a high school diploma. The certificate is earned by passing four official GED® tests in the areas of Reasoning Through Language Arts, Social Studies, Science and Mathematics. Getting your GED® certificate can make a big difference in your ability to get and keep a job or to qualify for further education.

We will assess your Math and English levels and place you into a class that best fits your needs. 
Civics (Citizenship)
Let us help you begin the process to become a U.S. citizen today. During your naturalization eligibility interview, a USCIS Officer will test your ability to read, write, and speak English (unless you are exempt from the English requirements). You will also be given a civics test in English, to test your knowledge and understanding of U.S. history and government, unless you are exempt. Our classes will prepare you to pass the reading, writing and speaking tests. We also have services to help you complete the N-400 form and to answer any questions regarding the process.
