ACADEMIC ENGLISH PROGRAM DATES

ELI courses are offered on a semester-term basis.  We have three semesters each year:  Fall, Spring, and Summer.  While students are encouraged to begin our program at the start of a semester, students have the option of enrolling in our classes at the mid-point of each semester.  We call this a mid-semester enrollment.
