Maine Residents, Welcome to the ESOL program at USM !

This page is for Immigrants and Refugees (non-native speakers of English) who intend to study English full- or part-time at USM either as non-matriculated special students or matriculated degree students. The University of Southern Maine offers English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL or ESL) year-round. The goal of our English as a Second Language Program is to serve our students.
