International Student Services & Programs

Welcome to the International Student Services & Programs department of Red Rocks Community College!

The mission of the International Student Services & Programs Department at Red Rocks Community College is to provide a welcoming, empowering environment that encourages a diverse college community to become the next generation of global citizens. This is achieved through quality English language programming, inter-cultural and academic advising, co-curricular experiences, and pathways to bridge cultural-linguistic barriers.

We build an accepting respectful community which is passionately committed to academic success. Our department offers many services and programs for the community as well as both international and resident students. We open our campuses to the world and open the world to our campuses. We are glad you have chosen Red Rocks, and we are happy to assist you in any way we can.

International students can enroll in our intensive ESL program to improve their English skills and prepare them for an academic path and additional college classes. Once an international student has successfully completed our intensive ESL program, they can enroll in our college classes and choose their academic pathway. All international students must take an ESL assessment prior to meeting with an academic advisor. No TOFEL score is required.

If an international student tests at a level where they no longer need ESL classes, they may enroll in our college classes. Approval to enroll in transfer level classes must be approved by the International Student Services staff. Documentation of prior English abilities may be substituted for a placement test but must be approved by this office.
