Welcome! Shasta College offers many opportunities to learn and study English. Depending on how much English you know and your goals, there is a program of English for you.

If you have already studied English, and plan to take college classes, you may be eligible for the "Academic Program". These courses can enhance your success in college. To begin, you need to fill out an application for admission to Shasta College. Call the Assessment Office at 530.242.7751 to arrange to take the ESL Assessment. From this test, the college will tell you which class you can take. For any questions regarding academic counseling please call 530.242.7724.

We also offer the "Non-Academic Program" for people who have never studied English, or do not understand it well. To begin the process, call the ESL office at 530.242.7711 or email Idalia Huckman at: ihuckman @
