English as a Second Language (ESL) Program

Partnership with Northampton Community College

Is your English test score too low? Are you nervous about taking an English exam? Would you like to take English as a Second Language (ESL) classes? 

You can attend the ESL program at Northampton Community College (NCC) and transfer to Kutztown University (KU) after you complete the ESL program. Most college-level classes transfer from NCC to KU, so you will not have to take any classes more than once.

Northampton's beautiful modern campus is only 45 minutes by car from Kutztown University and offers on-campus residence halls, a large diverse group of international students, and an active International Student Organization.
