  1. The information published herein is subject to change.  Please check with the English Language Institute. (StudyEnglish@eli.ufl.edu)

  4. These payments are NOT made to the University of Florida, or the ELI.

EXPLANATION OF DATES AND FEES

  • Terms: Long (14-15 week) terms are designed to match the academic calendar of degree-seeking students as much as possible. However, enrolled graduate students MUST follow the academic dates provided to them by their departments. Short (7- or 8-week) terms are intended for casual learners, professionals, students with full admission to the university, or as preparation for a long semester. It is not possible to exit the ELI or receive a UF English proficiency test waiver in a short semester.
  • Check-In and Placement Testing: All students are required to report to the ELI on the published check-in date. All students are required to take a placement test on the published date. All students are required to begin attending classes on the published date. A $100 late arrival fee is charged to new and returning students who miss the check-in session without notifying the ELI in advance, or who check-in but do not attend the first week of classes. Students who check-in but do not attend the first day of classes may be dropped from the program.
  • Tuition: Tuition must be paid by the end of the third day of classes. Tuition includes full-time enrollment of 23 hours per week: 10 hours of Reading/Writing, 8 hours of Listening/Speaking, 5 hours of Grammar. Alternate courses such as Business English, Conversation Strategies, Writing and Grammar for Writing, and others are available when enrollment allows. Tuition does not include possible additional electives such as pronunciation, IELTS or TOEFL prep, advanced vocabulary, or others. Tuition also includes participation in the cultural immersion program and the services described below in "student support." Part-time enrollment is not permitted on a student (F-1) visa.
  • Housing: This is the estimated costs of a student apartment. A student apartment includes a private bedroom and bathroom, but a shared kitchen and living area. Average figures include electricity, water, and parking. They do not include nonrefundable application fees ($160 average) or refundable security deposits ($750 average). Family or private housing is also available at a higher cost. Payment for housing is made directly to the student apartment complex, not to the University of Florida or the ELI.
  • Estimated Insurance, Books, Food and Personal Expenses: The University of Florida requires students to carry medical insurance. The cost of medical insurance varies in price from term to term depending on such factors as length of study, age and marital status. Medical insurance for a single student under the age of 25 is $149 per month. Students who can provide proof of medical insurance matching the Florida requirements are not required to purchase additional insurance. The cost of books changes depending upon a student's levels, but average about $300 per term. Most students choose to prepare food in their apartments which is what these estimated costs are based upon. If students plan on eating every meal at the university cafeterias or local restaurants, the cost is higher. Payments for insurance, books, food, and personal expenses are made directly to the providers, not to the University of Florida or the ELI.
  • Total Estimated Costs per Term: These are the total estimate costs for the complete term of study. Students without outside support or scholarships must show proof of this amount in order to be eligible for a student visa.
