Please note: We are accepting master's applications for our Spanish program only.

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 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 (see below). 

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 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. 

For 2022: The tuition deposit will be due April 13th, and the balance of tuition and fees will be due May 15th. No tuition refunds will be made after May 31st.

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!
