My blog:

Our EAP Program mission is to attend to the needs of every learner. The focus is meaningful academic and interpersonal English language communication skills gains.  The benefits are an improved proficiency and skills and abilities to help overcome barriers in assimilating into U.S. communities, academia, and the workplace.  Many of our students will complete SPC certificate or degree programs after they complete EAP.

Our academic intermediate to advanced EAP classes keep the learning "real" and "face-to-face."  Courses qualify for financial aid, in some cases, and the highest levels EAP1695 and EAP1500 earn credits toward some degree programs:
