ESL Classes

Lindsey Wilson College does not have a separate English as a Second Language (ESL) institute and does NOT offer a beginning level of intensive ESL Classes. You must have English skills of intermediate level, e.g. a minimum TOEFL score of paper 450 (iBT 45).  Because our ESL courses are part of our regular college courses, these courses are given college credits marked as "Credit" or "Non-Credit" rather than letter grades (A, B, C, and F).  Admission to Lindsey Wilson College means that you will be taking regular classes along with credit bearing ESL and developmental courses.  

Based on our placement test (ACCUPLACER) scores at the beginning, normally students whose TOEFL scores raging from 450-500 (iBT 45-61) will take our ESL Classes (English 0803 and English 0804) in the fall and 0854 in the spring.  Because you must keep at least 12 credit hours to be a full-time F-1 student, you must take additional regular classes with American students. Students whose English abilities are weak or any students who need additional academic help will be able to request our free tutoring for any classes from our Academic Success Center.  If your TOEFL score is high (paper 530/iBT 71), you may not need to take our ESL classes nor some of the Developmental courses.  However, if you want to take these classes for your first semester to improve your English abilities, it will be up to you. visitschool
