Signing Up for ELL Classes

Students interested in signing up for ELL classes should complete the following steps:

  1. Apply for admission to KCC. This can be done online at www.kellogg.edu/step1. If you need assistance, contact KCC’s Admissions office at 269-965-4153 or adm@kellogg.edu or visit us in the Hub on campus at 450 North Ave. in Battle Creek.
  2. Take the Accuplacer ESL exam. The results of the Accuplacer ESL exam will determine the level of coursework the individual student should enroll in. It is common for students to test at different levels depending on the subject. For example, a student might test into speaking/listening at an advanced level, yet they may test into reading/writing and grammar/communication at an intermediate level. For more information or to schedule an appointment, contact KCC’s Testing & Assessment Center at 269-965-4136 or testing@kellogg.eduWalk-in testing is available from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and by appointment Fridays, and a government- or school-issued photo ID (driver’s license, state ID, passport, high school, college or military ID) is required to test.
