Moreno Valley College, Norco College and Riverside City College offer a pathway to
English fluency for multilingual speakers through the English as a Second Language
(ESL) program. Recent immigrants, long-time residents, and international students
can all benefit. Our students are from diverse countries and range in age from recent
high school graduates to experienced adult learners. All of our students share a similar
goal to increase their English fluency quickly in order to achieve success in academics
or the workplace.
The colleges offer a sequence of courses that lead to English 1A, the transfer level
English course. The tools on this website, as well as guidance from college counselors,
can help you select the course that is right for you.
Use the RCCD Guided Self Placement Tool to understand which ESL course is right for you.
Decide if you want to take credit or noncredit courses depending on your educational
goal. Students can learn more about this in the “What Course Should I Take?” section.
