The Spanish program has closed the application process for 2018.

Please check back again in October for Summer 2019 or contact us now for information.

For Master's degree candidates, follow the three-step process below.
If you are interested in taking courses without pursuing the degree, see instructions for Non-Master's Students below.

Master's Candidates

Step 1

  • Fill out the SOU graduate application
  • Official transcripts are to be sent directly to the Admissions office; do not send them to the Summer Language Institute. Although GRE scores are requested on this form, our program does not require them. You will be asked about your state residency, but out of state tuition does not apply to our program (see Tuition and Fees).

*If you are a U.S. citizen, please DO NOT complete the application for Graduate International Students.  This is only for foreign (non U.S.) applicants.

Step 2

  • The second step is the online SOU Summer Language Institute application
  • You will need to upload a one-page statement of your teaching philosophy, resume, two signed letters of recommendation that address your teaching and language experience, and your ACTFL Oral Proficiency Interview rating (see step 3).  

Step 3

  • Submit a copy of an ACTFL certified oral proficiency interview rating (OPI): ACTFL Webpage 
  • To set up this interview, go to Language Testing International and fill out the application form. Select "Web-Based Proctor." Also, select "Southern Oregon University" as the school you are affiliated with, so we will have direct access to your score. The process to set up the interview and receive the results can take several weeks, so you should begin as soon as possible.  Please make sure to select the OPI exam, as we do not accept the OPIc.


We will mail acceptance letters in March. At that time we will send information regarding housing and course registration along with travel insurance and liability forms that you must complete. An initial tuition deposit of $500 is due April 6, 2018. Full balance of tuition and fees is due May 11, 2018.

Cancellation and Refund Policy

The $500 tuition deposit is nonrefundable. If we receive written notice of your cancellation between May 11 and May 31, 2018 we will refund 50% of tuition which does not include the $500 deposit. No refunds will be made after May 31, 2018.
