One academic year includes four consecutive terms and each term is nine weeks long. We recommend that payment be made for the academic year.

The tuition fees do not include the cost for textbooks and supplemental materials. The estimated cost per term is $200. Due to the online section of the textbooks, you will need to purchase a new set of textbooks for each level of placement before classes start.


 All payments must be made in full at the latest five business days before classes start. If payment is not made, the student will be removed from the semester roster and forfeit the enrollment fee. ELI accepts payments in the form of bank wire, cash, check, PayPal, and credit cards. Please note that payments made using a credit card will incur a 4% fee. All other payment types do not incur a fee.
