Community ESL Program (No I-20 Issued)
Sign up for a Community ESL class, go to: http://www.campusce.net/bc/category/category.aspx?C=&S=1565
What is it?
These are cost effective and fun ESL classes for the local community to improve general English skills. Community ESL classes are non-credit and non-graded; hence BC is unable to issue I-20s for F-1 students for this program. However, F-1 students may sign up for these as supplemental classes provided that they remain full-time in their I-20 program (e.g., intensive ESL or IBP programs).
Non-native English speakers who already live in the local community and wish to learn English in a non-academic setting. Students already have a valid immigration status and do not need an I-20 form from BC to remain legally in the US.
