Admission requirements

Students must be eligible for college-level credit courses in order to pursue the TESOL certificate. (If needed, remediation for students will be provided by Harper's Academic Support Services and the Writing Center.) Because the certificate is most often complementary to a college degree, those students who have completed a degree or are pursuing an Associate's degree would be most successful.
