Summer Language Institutes

In the Summer Language Institutes (SLI), students engage in dynamic classroom instruction that includes language media technology, small class sizes, cultural excursions to nearby Washington D.C. and one-on-one language partner meetings with native speakers. SLI provides a full year of language instruction in just nine weeks. SLI offers two languages: Arabic or Persian. Students enroll in either a 6-credit or 12-credit language program. All students are charged tuition (at the MD in-state undergraduate rate), a one-time campus mandatory student services fee, and a program fee (based on registering for 6- or 12-credits). All students must apply to SLI AND Summer Session. Learn more about SLI.

Participation is as follows:

  1. All non-UMD students must apply as a Visiting Undergraduate for Summer Session.
  2. All students, including UMD students, must apply to SLI.
  3. SLI Payment Due Date: April 24. The due date is strictly enforced. Should payment (including financial aid, scholarships, or tuition remission) for tuition and fees not post to your student account, you will be canceled and a registration block placed on your account.
