Sessions for Local Community Members

Intensive English courses from time to time become open to local residents of Fort Worth.  TCU encourages community members to inquire when classes are available and what the pro-rated Program tuition is per each course. Unless admitted as a TCU student, a local community member who audits the available classes is not able to take advantage of the benefits, services, and options available only to TCU students.

As scheduled with the local medical school and or with TCU graduate programs, workshops are offered in accent acquisition and improvement of spoken English comprehensibility.
