English Language Learners (ELL) Services for Non-Native Speakers of English

The ELL services in SASC exist primarily to support students enrolled in SASC programs and classes. 

Writing Courses for Non-Native Speakers of English

ARSC 1080 is a lower level research and writing course that meets the Arts and Sciences core requirement for Written Communications. One writing section in the fall semester of the academic year is specifically for non-native speakers of English. This course is controlled enrollment for SASC program students. CU ELL students not in a SASC program are invited to register if space is available after our program students are accommodated (see the SASC Writing Program web page for instructions on how to enroll). CU ELL students are all eligible to register for The ELL writing class in the university’s Program of Writing and Rhetoric (PWR)

General Support

SACS’s ELL coordinator, Dan West, has worked with non-native English speakers for 25 years and understands the difficulties that these students face at the University. He is available to help support students and make referrals for students who have academic or personal needs. Some of these needs have been letters of support for more time to take exams, referrals to counseling and answering questions when the University becomes a confusing place to negotiate. Contact Dan at Daniel.West@colorado.edu or 303-492-1405.
