Follow the Continuing Education instructions below if you want to take ESOL classes as a noncredit student.
Complete the Continuing Education application form. There are two ways to do this:
In person: Pick up the paper application form at one of the Continuing Education Offices (Highland Business Center, Room 401, or Round Rock Campus, Room 2110) .
Online: Complete the Online CE Application form. If you have a social security number, we will contact you to request this by phone. We need it to process the application.
You will receive an ACC student ID. If you don’t have a social security number, you will also receive an “alternate ID.”
Take the ESOL assessment. It includes a writing sample, computer test, and an oral interview. Allow at least 4 hours for your testing appointment.
- Pay a $29 ESOL assessment fee at the Cashier Office (at Highland Campus, Riverside Campus, or Round Rock Campus) or online here . (You must show your student ID number.)
- Choose a location for your ESOL Assessment and plan your visit. You will find all the locations here. Assessment is on a walk-in basis. No appointment is necessary. Check the Testing Center schedule for the hours at a campus near you.
- Review sample questions.
- On test day, bring an official photo ID, your ACC student ID number, your social security number or “alternate ID” and your assessment fee receipt.
- Schedule an appointment with an ACC ESOL Faculty Assessor. Go to http://calendly.com/esol-acc to schedule your appointment. At the appointment, you will complete the last part of your assessment (the oral interview) and discuss your test results.

New students must bring the following items to either Continuing Education location to register. (Only returning students can register online.)
