Non-Credit ESOL

Are you struggling because English is not your first language?

We offer a variety of classes to help you improve your English skills. Choose from "basic" classes if you are new to the language or "intermediate" to "advanced" if you want to continue to improve your English skills. 

In order to take our classes, you must first take the CELSA placement test and pay the non-credit class fee. CELSA test is offered at the Testing Services Department. 

To get started, visit the GCC Enrollment Center on our Main Campus, or the Chinle Student Services Building on our North Campus and ask about Non-Credit ESOL classes.

Spring 2024 non-credit ESOL classes start date January 22, 2024. Basic, Beginning and Intermediate levels. Download Class Information (pdf)
