If a participant decides not to attend a course to which s/he has been accepted, s/he may apply the $300 non-refundable deposit to another course within 6 months.
If the candidate is not accepted or the course is cancelled due to low enrollment, the $300 deposit will be returned (along with any tuition paid, and the $125 housing search fee, if applicable).
If a participant withdraws in the first two days of the program, ILI will retain 50% of the tuition ($1100) and the $300 non-refundable deposit.
Non-native speakers who decide to withdraw from the course in the first two days due to language difficulties will also receive 50% of their tuition back minus the non-refundable deposit.
There will be no tuition refunded after the first two full days of the course.
If a participant must withdraw mid-course for serious medical reasons or because of a family emergency, and can provide a doctor’s certificate confirming the situation, s/he can re-enroll within 6 months without payment of further fees. There will be no refund.
If you cancel prior to the course start date but after arrival in the US on an ILI-issued Form I-20, ILI will keep tuition and accommodation charges equal to the first 4 weeks. In addition, ILI will keep all non-refundable fees (including registration, SEVIS, homestay placement and express mail fees)
You should definitely take this course if you are serious about learning to teach ESOL. It’s NOT a ‘workshop,’ it’s a full-blown year-long college course condensed into 19 days!
