English Language Learners (ELL) are an important part of the HTC college community. HTC's goal is to help ELL students be successful at HTC and beyond.  Students who want to succeed in a technical college program need a deep understanding of English, a strong vocabulary, good study skills, and knowledge of American culture.

HTC has set up services to assist immigrant students as they pursue their education. The ESL advisors are available to discuss your educational support service needs such as:

Course selection and review of accuplacer test scores
Career exploration
Financial aid applications
Scholarship applications
Referrals to tutoring and mentoring
Community service referrals

ESL Courses

The English for Technical Studies (ESL) courses prepare ELL students for enrollment in career programs. Courses focus on student's academic and career skills. Students will learn reading, writing, listening, speaking, leadership, and technology skills needed in the college classrooms. They will also learn special vocabulary used in different careers. ESL courses are for ELL students with an intermediate level of English or higher.

In addition to the credit based ESL courses, HTC offers non-credit hour based (CEUs) courses through the Customized Training Services.
