English as a Second Language
English as a Second Language courses are offered at three OCC campuses: Royal Oak, Auburn Hills, and Orchard Ridge (Farmington Hills). These courses help prepare students to be successful in other academic courses.
We offer four levels of combined writing/reading courses, four levels of combined grammar/listening courses, and three levels of speaking courses. These are credit courses that follow the semester plan.
In addition, Royal Oak and Orchard Ridge campuses also offer lower level, non-credit courses called the Bridge Class for students who are not ready for the lowest level of our credit program.
