English as a Second Language (ESL)

Fulton-Montgomery Community College offers a full-time Intensive English Language Program for students who need to improve their language ability before beginning a college degree or certificate program. The Language Program is also intended for those who want to study English for career or social purposes before returning to their countries. Students receive 20-25 hours of instruction each week. After arrival to campus, a free English placement exam is given which determines the necessary level of English study the student will need.

COMBINED ESL + Degree Program Admission

If the student intends to continue studies at the FMCC campus after ESL study, a single admission can be granted for the English Language Program and an academic degree or certificate program. Admission as a full-time student to an academic program is contingent on the successful completion of the ESL Program. The required TOEFL IBT score of 61 (or paper TOEFL equivalent of 500) is waived when the dual admission option is chosen and the ESL program is successfully completed. Our institution also recognizes other placement scores including: ESL level 109, IELT 5.5, itep level 4, Pearson -PTE Academic English Testing score 44 and STEP EIKEN test results. Grade Pre-1 or higher is required for undergraduate degree programs, or waived when the dual admission option is chosen.
