ESL Communication Skills Program Application

Applications should be received by the application deadline. After the deadline, course sections may be added or canceled depending on student enrollment, so early application is recommended. Students applying after the application deadline will be placed in classes on a space available basis. If no space is available, students will receive a full refund.

If you are a new student, you must take the placement test. See the calendar for the scheduled test date for the session you want to enroll. You will receive an email from the Language Programs office regarding your schedule no later than the last business day before classes begin.

Course fees will be refunded in full if the class is canceled or if a student cancels a registration before the application deadline.

If cancellation is made after the application deadline but before 5:00 p.m. on the last business day before classes begin, a $30 processing fee will be deducted from the refund. Students withdrawing before the fourth class meeting will receive a refund of one-third of the course fee. There is no refund for any student withdrawing after the fourth class meeting.

All refund requests must be submitted in writing to esl@rice.edu.

Refunds will be processed as credits to the accounts from which they were paid and may not appear as a credit until the following statement. Refunds for enrollments paid by check take up to four weeks to be processed and are mailed by the Rice University accounting office. There is a $30 charge for any check returned for insufficient funds.

I have read and understand the refund policy.
