For students who still require a bit more work on their English language skills (but who do not require a full-immersion program), we have English as a Second Language (ESL) certified instructors who teach courses in writing, speaking and reading so that English language learners can further develop language skills as they begin their academic courses. Our speaking course features a “conversation partner” program and our campus offers free one-on-one tutoring in an array of academic subjects such as English composition, math, biology and psychology. We offer several computer labs on our campus, as well as an engineering lab.
Navigating the immigration process can be confusing. You will find current information about becoming an international student in the United States when you visit these websites.

Community Connections & Friendship Families
The UW-Barron County International Program features a network of local residents fondly referred to as Community Connections. These individuals help international students become acquainted with Rice Lake and its scenic surrounding area, as well as our active (and sometimes adventurous) Midwestern lifestyle. These neighboring friends embrace learning about other cultures as they join in many campus activities, host outings to community events and often invite international students to their homes to experience holiday celebrations and American culture throughout the semesters.
Please email the International Program Advisers for further information about participating in Community Connections.
