Language and Culture Center
The Language and Culture Center (LCC), housed in the Department of English, provides noncredit compensatory English language instruction to undergraduate and graduate international students who must improve their reading, writing, grammar, or spoken English language skills to compete successfully in the university classroom. Graduate students who score low on the Test of Spoken English (TSE), the Foreign Service Institute (FSI) direct proficiency oral interview, or other nationally standardized tests may enroll (register) for courses in reading/writing, pronunciation, and teaching styles in higher education.
LCC courses do not count toward a degree, but do count toward full-time student status for immigration reporting purposes, and for calculation of building use and student service fees.
