Lansing Community College

Are you ready to save money and start your pathway to an education in the United States?

Taking English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) courses online is a great way to improve your English reading, writing, speaking and listening skills, and prepare you to take college credit courses as a Lansing Community College (LCC) student and, ultimately, transfer to a four-year university.

Save money - take LCC ESOL online classes in your home country

By taking ESOL courses online through LCC in your home country, you will save a lot of money! Since you are not in the United States, you qualify for “out-of-state” tuition, which is a lower cost than “international” tuition rates.

Out-of-state tuition rate $360
International tuition rate $420

Additionally, by taking online classes through LCC in your home country,  you will not have to worry about finding housing or transportation, and the TESOL requirement is waived.

The Pathway for ESOL Students who live outside the U.S.


Take NCEL 034 in your home country

NCEL 034 is a 16-week low intermediate ESOL reading, speaking, writing and listening course for English as a second language learners.


Take ESOL 098 and  ESOL 099 in your home country
Depending on your course placement level, taking either of these courses will help non-native English speakers build academic vocabulary and increase reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. These classes are offered in a hyflex class format, which means you will have a live class online and see other students!

After completing NCEL 034, ESOL 098 and ESOL 099, you are ready to apply for your F-1 student visa with your Academic I-20.
