ESL

Nashville State offers four levels of ESL (English as a Second Language) courses from the advanced beginner level to the low advanced level. These courses are designed to teach immigrants and international students academic English to prepare them for college-level coursework.

English Placement
Students who do not have English as their first/home language take the Michigan Plus Test  for English placement unless they score 19 or higher on the Reading and English portions of the ACT, or have transfer credit for ENGL 1010 from a U.S. college. Michigan Plus Test scores are used for placement purposes only at Nashville State and cannot be reported to other institutions.

F-1 Students
If you are an F-1 visa student and need an I-20 to study ESL, please click here. F-1 students who are non-degree-seeking and study ESL at Nashville State will take the Michigan Plus Test on site instead of submitting a TOEFL score. Click here for Michigan Plus Test information.

ESL Accommodations
ESL accommodations may be available for those who complete all recommended ESOL courses. Those who do not wish to take ESOL courses must sign a waiver of ESL assistance and are not eligible for ESL accommodations.
