Other Program Information

2017 Tuition Costs

Full-time tuition: $2100.00 per session. Please note that there is an additional $300 fee required for the first session to cover orientation and four ELI Success classes.

Part-time/Utah Resident tuition: $525 per class. After 4 classes, part-time students may show proof of U.S. citizenship or LPR card (green card) to receive a 15% discount on tuition.

Part-time Student and/or US Resident or Citizen: instructions may be found here on the application process.

Full-time students with an F-1 visa: You should apply at least three months in advance of the session you choose to start your English study. Applications completed after the deadline may not give you enough time to obtain your visa depending on the visa wait time in your country. In this case, your I-20 would have to be express mailed to you at your expense. To find out the visa wait time for your country, visit this State Dept. page. If you cannot arrive by the Mandatory Orientation date, then you should plan to change your I-20 Start date.
