Returning students are expected to register during the last week of the term.

To register, you must complete the Returning Students Registration Form available in the ELI office. This form should be returned to the Assistant Director during your advising appointment scheduled the last week of the term. Without prior approval you are not allowed to register after the Returning Student registration dates have passed.

*New students must take a placement test before registering for the term.

Students on an F-1 visa must attend the program full-time. If you are on an F-1 visa you cannot drop below 20 hours of study per week, or you will be in violation of your visa status.

There are several reasons why you may not be able to register for the term. Some reasons are:

  • Probation due to absence or academic failure
  • Held grades from a previous term
  • Overdue payment
  • Not submitting medical records or immunizations
  • Not having health insurance (full-time students)
  • Not showing proof of health insurance
  • Visa status

It is your responsibility to resolve any registration blocks.

You may change your course selection only within the first week of the term. Adding or dropping courses may affect your visa status or billing. See the Academic Calendar for add/drop deadlines.

If you would like to add or drop a class, you must:

  • Complete an Add/Drop Form and have it approved by the Academic Director.
  • Bring the approved Add/Drop Form to the Assistant Director for processing.

A request to add or drop a course is not guaranteed. If the request is denied you must continue with the assigned course(s) or risk failing your course(s).
