We are now accepting applications for 2021! Please see below for application instructions and information on our procedures for acceptance, payment, and refunds.
The priority deadline for consideration is March 1st.

Please visit our front page for information on COVID-19's impact on the 2020 SLI. We hope to meet abroad in 2021! If any adjustments should become necessary due to the pandemic, we will keep you informed.

Please note: We are accepting master's applications for our Spanish program only.
We can also accept non-admit applications for both French and Spanish courses.

How to Apply:

If you are a Master's degree candidate, please follow the instructions below.
If you are interested in taking courses without pursuing the degree, see the Non-Master's Students tab for instructions.


After your application is submitted, we will send you a confirmation email when all materials (transcript, letters of recommendation, etc.) are received and your file is complete. We aim to review applications and notify applicants of admissions decisions no later than early March, depending on when they are received. 

Furthermore, if applications are completed far enough in advance of the March 1st priority deadline to allow us to review them early, we will inform applicants of a decision as soon as possible, whenever it is feasible for us to do so.

Acceptance letters will be sent by email in March, and will be followed by information regarding housing, advising, course registration, required travel insurance and required liability forms that SLI students must complete. An initial tuition deposit of $500 is due April 5th, 2021

Payment, Cancellation and Refund Policies

If you are accepted to Summer Language Institute, you will receive an invoice and payment instructions in early March for a non-refundable tuition deposit of $500, in order to confirm your intent to attend. This deposit is due by April 5th, 2021, and will be applied to your tuition balance when you are billed for your classes.

After completing advising and registration for your classes, you will receive an invoice and payment instructions for all tuition and fees, less your deposit. This balance will be due May 10th, 2021, unless you are expecting financial aid. If written notice of cancellation is received before May 31st, we will refund 50% of tuition and fees, not including the $500 deposit. 

No refunds will be made after May 31st, 2021.

Students who cancel SLI-arranged homestays after June 1st will be assessed a cancellation fee of $150 and will be solely liable for the full amount of the homestay.

As mentioned above, we will keep current and prospective students informed if any adjustments should become necessary for 2021.

We look forward to receiving your application materials!
