Applications for Summer 2024 are now being accepted!
The priority deadline each year is March 1st.
See below for application instructions and information on our procedures for acceptance, payment, and refunds. We review for decisions as soon as feasible during our application period as files are completed.

Summer 2024 Session Dates: 

Session 1: June 23 - July 12
Session 2: July 14 - August 2

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-Degree-Seeking Students tab for instructions.

Master’s candidates must be currently teaching Spanish at the K-12 or college level and must have taught for at least one year. Non-Master’s applicants must have a bachelor’s degree and can be either a current or aspiring language teacher.


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 feasible.

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 typically due in early April. 

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 - this is required of all students each year, in order to confirm one's intent to attend abroad. This deposit is typically due in early April, 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 typically be due in early May, unless you are expecting financial aid or tuition assistance. If written notice of cancellation is received before May 31st, we will refund 50% of tuition and fees, not including the $500 deposit. 

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.

We look forward to receiving your application materials!
