Application Deferment

Deferral of an Application

An applicant must contact ESL before the First Day of the Session if a deferral is necessary.

After the third deferral, a student will be charged the application fee again. Students entering on an F-1 visa must submit new proof of funding if the original paperwork is more than one year old.

Cancellation of an Application

Cancellation notice must be made in writing (e-mail is OK).

There is no refund of the initial application fee of $160. A tuition refund of 100% is given if the cancellation notice is received before the first day of Week 1 of a session. No refund is given for a cancellation notice submitted after classes have started.
