Credit ESL

Credit ESL courses are courses that prepare students for their long term goal of entering a degree program

You can enroll in ESL courses for credit on both the West Windsor Campus and the James Kerney Campus. The courses include ESL grammar, conversation, reading, writing and pronunciation. Computer-assisted instruction (CAI) is also available on both campuses.

To find the right course, e-mail Savita Bambhrolia at We can then discuss what you need to do to begin your registration process. Credit courses require placement testing, so after you've completed an MCCC application, you may call 609-570-3295 to make an appointment to take the free placement test in the Academic Testing Center. The Center is located on the second floor of the Student Center on the West Windsor Campus. The test can also be taken on the James Kerney Campus (JKC) in room KC409. For more information at JKC, please call 609-586-4800 ext. 6633 or 6635.
