A proposed program in English as a Second Language (ESL) for limited-English-proficient students at California State University at Los Angeles (CSLA) is outlined. Eligible international students and recent immigrants and refugees would be identified and placed using a test of English for academic purposes. The proposed program would consists of three content-based courses at sub-collegiate, lower-division, and upper-division levels, designed to mirror demands of the general education curriculum and provide computer literacy needed for academic success. Student must fulfill existing basic and upper-division writing requirements. ESL students would also be able to take existing speech and communication courses focusing on oral skills. The program would be placed within the English department, the existing program of English for speakers of other languages (TESOL), or an appropriate administrative unit such as learning services. Appended materials include the ESL advisory committee membership list, general catalog descriptions of CSLA admission requirements for non-native speakers of English, and charts detailing program course objectives and content.
