CESL students

The Center for English as a Second Language is happy to announce that we have returned to in-person classes!


By enrolling in any CESL classes, you will have access to live, instantaneous feedback on all your English language questions by certified ESL professionals with master's degrees or higher in the field. Course content, homework, feedback and instruction are the same in both our in-person and online classes. Successfully completing CESL's OU Track in either modality will enable academically admissible candidates to enroll in the University of Oklahoma!

Apply now for any of our upcoming sessions, online or in person. Application deadlines for online classes are flexible, but for in-person classes, you must apply by the deadline to have enough time to obtain your F-1 visa.

Admission to the University of Oklahoma is NOT required to enroll with CESL.
