Dependents
Students who add dependents (regardless of when they are added either at initial application or later) will be charged $25 per dependent.

Late Arrivals

Late Arrivals. Students are expected to report and register at CESL on the I-20 report date. If you cannot arrive on the arrival date, please contact CESL admissions office for advice. You will need to defer to the next available session.

Students who arrive late are subject to late fees and cannot be guaranteed ideal placement. There may be a shortage of class textbooks and late students cannot change classes. Late students are subject to the same attendance and student regulations as those who arrive on time. Late arriving students will be marked absent for any classes they missed due to their late arrival. Late arrival may affect the course grade and lessen chances to advance to the next level. Students who do not attend the full 8-week full-time session are not eligible for endorsement.

Late fees: Students arriving late are subject to late fees

New students who arrive late will need to pay a late test fee of $75 if checking in on or after Thursday of intake week.
New students who arrive late will need to pay a late orientation fee of $50 by Friday of intake week.
Late tuition fee: 10% of tuition. Applicable to new, returning, and continuing students who have not paid tuition by Friday of intake week.
New part-time IEP students who do not register and test prior to the first day of class will be charged a late test fee of $75.

If a full time student fails to enroll on time and accumulates excessive absences, his/her I-20 will be terminated and they will be dismissed from CESL.

Late arrivals, Finances, and Immigration

In order to begin classes, every student must either pay tuition and fees in full or present a current, valid financial guarantee from a sponsoring agency for CESL.

If an IEP student fails to enroll in time and accumulates excessive absences, his/her I-20 will be terminated.  If a student misses the first week, s/he has already missed too many classes by CESL policy and will not be permitted to enroll.  Late enrollment is not possible after the first week and is discouraged in any case.

Transfer without enrolling

If you transfer to another program or school before you begin at least one session at CESL, there is a $500.00 withdrawal fee and limited refunds. To initiate the transfer we must receive copies of the students' immigration documents, CESL Withdrawal Form and the admission letter and transfer form from the new school.
