English as a Second Language (ESL) Classes
UW-Marathon County offers a reading, writing and oral communication class for international students.
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.

- How to Navigate the US Immigration System – Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)
Community Connections & Friendship Families
To help accommodate students to their new living environment, each student will be matched with a Community Connection Family. A Community Connection Family is not a home-stay or live-in program, but a local community member who will take time to connect with students every month. The Community Connection Family will provide a student with on-going social interaction and support throughout the school year.
Being involved with a Community Connection Family gives students the great opportunity to practice their English and become immersed in the American culture. Our Community Connection Families have many years of experience hosting international students and enjoy helping students discover their new home at UW-Marathon County!
