English as a Second Language (ESL)

The ESL Program at Missouri Valley College provides English language instruction for entering students who lack academic English proficiency to prepare them for success in college-level coursework where English is the language of instruction.

The ESL Program offers courses at the intermediate and advanced levels. The intermediate level is completed in one semester of full-time ESL coursework. The Advanced level is also completed in one semester, but the student will take regular college coursework alongside the ESL classes.
