REFUNDS

Refunds will only be given if a student OFFICIALLY withdraws from CESL by the second Friday of the term. To officially withdraw a student must meet with their CESL advisor. If a student officially withdraws, he/she may receive a refund of tuition and activities fees ONLY. All other fees are non-refundable.


*Costs do not apply to alternative programing. For more information, please contact cesl@siu.edu.

**The application fee is the final step toward admission to our program. CESL reserves the right to charge certain applicants a non-refundable initial deposit, in addition to the application fee. This fee will be collected at the time the application is approved, before the I-20 is mailed out. Once the applicant is admitted and registers for their initial CESL term, the entire deposit will be credited towards the cost of tuition.  Applicants are cautioned not to send any funds until they are asked to do so. 

***Tuition will increase to $2300.00 in Term 175 (begins August 21, 2017)

****Technology fee will increase to $30.00 in Term 175 (begins August 21, 2017)
