English as a Second Language Certificate Requirements

14 units

DUE: October 20, 2017

See your counselor first!

In order to apply for a Certificate of Proficiency, there are two steps involved:

Step 1: Make a “certificate petition appointment” to see a counselor. You can’t ask for a petition at a drop-in session. During your appointment, ask for two forms:

  1. a) Petition for a Certificate (yellow)
  2. b) Major Worksheet for the Certificate of Proficiency you’re applying for (white)

Your counselor must review the courses you have taken to make sure you meet the requirements for the certificate, and then you and your counselor must sign the yellow form.

Step 2: Turn in both of these forms to Admissions & Records, room A-109, by October 20, 2017.

PLEASE NOTE: In order to qualify for the certificate, you must pass the required courses with a grade of “C” or better.

The Admissions & Records Office will notify you when your Certificate of Proficiency is ready to be picked up, probably in February, 2018.
