SAMPLE LISTING of INTENSIVE ESL/ENGLISH SCHOOLS & LANGUAGE PROGRAMS

Please Note: Glendale C.C. offers full-time "Credit ESL/English" instruction during the regular Fall & Spring Semesters, and can issue the immigration Form I-20 for either "Language Training" or "Associate Degree" studies.  International students can apply for either program -- depending on their Academic and English background and overall study plan. 

The College also recommends the following intensive ESL Language Schools as additional options for students planning both English and full-time Degree studies in the U.S.  Prospective students can then "transfer-in" to GCC following successful completion from these ESL/English programs.
