SESSION DATES

The ELI operates six (6) sessions per year.  Fall and spring sessions are eight (8) weeks long, and summer sessions are six (6) to (7) weeks long. Summer session schedules are adjusted to receive the same number of instruction hours as the fall and spring sessions.

Students may enroll in our general program at the start of any of these six sessions.  An extensive orientation is offered only at the start of Fall 1, Spring 1, and Summer 1.  Second sessions have a shorter orientation period.  Graduation ceremonies are performed only at the end of the second sessions, in December, May, and August.

Please plan ahead! Turn in your application early.  Three months before a session start date is ideal.
