Intensive English Program
The Intensive English Program is designed for foreign students and residents preparing to enter American colleges or universities.

The Intensive English Program is fee-based and is offered at the Indian Valley Campus only. Part-time programs(6 or 12 hours) are available for residents, as well as shorter eight-week programs. Students do not receive college credit for the program. Web address: www.marincommunityed.org Tel: (415)-883-2211, ext. 8579

Noncredit ESL Classes
Noncredit ESL classes are designed for adults in the community who want to improve their English to survive in an English-speaking community, to get or keep a job, or to prepare for academic courses. Day, evening and Saturday classes are available for beginning to low-intermediate proficiency levels on both the Kentfield and Indian Valley campuses as well as in San Rafael and Novato. Students must take a noncredit assessment test before registering. These classes are free. For more information call: (415)485-9642.

Credit ESL Classes
Credit ESL classes are offered for college credit to students at intermediate to advanced proficiency levels. Classes at each level focus on grammar, speaking/listening, reading/vocabulary or writing. Early registration is strongly advised. To enroll in credit ESL classes, students must take a College of Marin ESL Student Success Workshop that includes placement testing, counseling and orientation before enrolling in classes. Students may call the ESL Office or the Counseling Office to sign up for a workshop. For more information, call (415)485-9642.
