Earn a College Degree While Learning English:

The English as a Second Language (ESL) program offers courses that develop the language skills necessary for international students to become successful English language learners while also working towards a college degree/certificate.  All of our courses are taught by well qualified, caring educators who truly understand the needs of ESL students.  (See the links below for a complete list of academic programs offered at RCC.) 

Flexible Hours/Financial Assistance:

Courses are offered both day and evening throughout the school year, and many of our students may be eligible for financial aid to help pay for college tuition and expenses.

Convenient Location:

Rockland County has a convenient bus transportation system, and its close proximity to New York City and many attractions such as Woodbury Commons and The Palisades Mall make it an excellent place for ESL students to learn about American culture.
