Tier I Language Arts Requirement for ESL/ELL Students

English as a Second Language (ESL) or English Language Learners (ELL) students are identified as those for whom English is not their primary/native language. These students may seek a waiver from MCLA's Tier I Language Arts requirement by providing documentation of the study of a non-English language to Learning Services. Documentation must include evidence of studies in a language (other than English) that covers speaking, listening, reading, and writing at a level commensurate with a second-level elementary college course in that language.

Learning Services will serve as the contact office for students seeking this waiver.
