English Language Acquisition (ELA)

ELA students in classAre you a resident looking to improve your English language skills for college or work?

These classes can help.

Our English Language Acquisition (ELA) program offers two types of classes:

  • Fast Track! ELA, which is an intensive non-credit program that meets 8-15 hours per week
  • Community ELA which is a less intense course for students who cannot make the time commitment for Fast Track! ELA.

To get started, you will first need to attend a free two-day orientation. Orientation sessions and classes are ongoing throughout the term and are offered in Albany, Corvallis, and Lebanon. After completing orientation, you must pay a $33 non-refundable fee when you register.
