English as a Second Language

Weber State University offers 11-week English as a Second Language (ESL) courses for those hoping to improve their English skills. Our ESL program is known for its well-qualified instructors, high completion rates and low-cost tuition. Students who register will take a placement test to determine their skill level: Pre-A, A, B or C. Each course is taught as a non-credit university course, requiring a grade of 77% or higher to advance to the next level.
The WSU Community Education Center intends to offer ESL courses face-to-face over fall semester. However, a change in COVID-19 risk levels may necessitate a switch to remote learning. WSU has contingency plans for how the university will deliver courses in any recovery stage, including if the state moves back to a heightened risk level or a specific situation arises on campus.
