The Excel Languages Center (LC) models and supports academic excellence at UCCS through FREE DROP-IN and online support services for Spanish, French, German, Japanese, Latin, American Sign Language, Chinese, and English (for international students).
The mission of the Excel Languages Center is to empower student success through collaborative learning, individualized tutoring, leadership development, and meaningful dialogues.
The Excel Languages Center (located in Dwire Hall 270) provides a supportive environment focused on academic achievement, language skills development, the celebration of cultural diversity, and an inclusive space that builds community. We administer foreign language diagnostic proficiency testing for MAPS requirements and assist with appropriate course sequence placement.
Our language conversation tables provide a fun and peer-guided space for students, faculty, staff, and community members to come together and practice a language of interest while engaging in meaningful dialogues and cultural exchange. Interested in study abroad? Looking for access to foreign films? Want to supplement your personal language learning? The LC is a great place to do homework, access computers/scanner/printer, interact with others who value diversity, and achieve your language goals.
Non-native English users: We administer KITE English proficiency testing for international student admissions. Individuals interested in taking the KITE assessment will need to pay and schedule an appointment.
