Steps to Enroll for English Language Learners.
CLC invites all English Language Learners (ELL) to apply for Admission. We want to support you in as many ways as possible to be successful. Listed below are suggested Steps to Enroll for English Language Learning students.
Apply to Central Lakes College
Students can apply directly on the CLC Admissions website. After applying, submit your High School Transcripts/GED. Do you have Transfer Credits? If they are from another Minnesota State College or University, complete an eTranscript Request Form to request an evaluation. If you have other credits, please submit official transcripts for evaluation. Finally, return an immunization form.
Apply for Financial Aid & Scholarships
Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at http://fafsa.ed.gov. Apply early to ensure financial aid is complete prior to the beginning of the semester. CLC’s FAFSA code is: 002339. After completing the FAFSA, apply for scholarships on the CLC Foundation website. If you are eligible for Veteran benefits, contact the Veteran Resource Center.
Complete the Accuplacer Placement Test
CLC requires all students to complete the Accuplacer before registering for classes. We have a special ELL Test available for you – just ask our friendly staff upon checking in. The computerized Accuplacer tests your reading and math levels and are used to enroll you in the appropriate courses. If you have not completed it within the last two years you will need to test. Take practice tests and sign up for an Accuplacer Testing Session on the Assessment website.
Please bring a photo ID to the testing session. ACT, MCA, and SAT test scores may be used instead of Accuplacer test scores if they are eligible.
Register for courses at a registration session or with an Advisor
Join us on campus to register for classes, receive important information about academic program(s), financial aid, billing & payment, campus services and take your student ID photo. Signup for your registration session on the CLC Registration website. Students will be guided into the right courses to meet their educational and career goals, and connect with the many campus resources. Advisors will encourage you to register for English for Academic Purposes (ENGL 1510). To ensure you receive the academic support you need to be successful in your courses.
