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

The first week of the Fall I, Spring I, and Summer I sessions is an orientation and enrollment period for new students. At the beginning of Fall II, Spring II, and Summer II sesssions there will be a one-day mini-orientation for new students.

We are happy to accept students at any time. However, please plan ahead and turn in your application well in advance of your desired start date.
