Are CLI classes really tuition free?..........YES, BUT COURSES HAVE FEES
ASU waives tuition on all CLI classes, including overseas classes. Courses are not free, however. ASU collects a CLI program fee, lab fees, application fees, recreation fees, etc. which add up to $1,500 for courses in Tempe.
For overseas courses, all ASU fees are included in the study-abroad fee. There are no additional ASU expenses.
Will program fees change if CLI goes online?
The $1,500 program fee will not change if CLI goes online. CLI classes will still be synchronous (live, real-time interactions as opposed to recorded lessons) and run for 4 hours a day, 5 days a week. We know from our experience in 2020 that our faculty works even harder to prepare for online programming. Creating engaging and interactive lesson plans, assessing and providing feedback on student work, providing support and assistance during office hours--all of this requires additional training, time, and effort in an online program. Most importantly, we found that students achieved similarly impressive proficiency results in our online program as they have with our in-person programs in previous years.
Some of our overseas-based courses will be available online. Since the study-abroad fee also covers housing, excursions, and other in-country costs, the fees will be lowered accordingly if the classes are offered online.
Does CLI offer funding?..........YES

Does CLI offer FLAS funding?..........NO

If you have FLAS funding from another university, you may apply it to CLI.
I have financial aid. Can I use it for CLI?..........THAT DEPENDS
That depends on the type of aid you have, on where you are enrolled, etc. Please consult your local financial aid office. CLI would be happy to provide them any information they require.
What is the deadline to withdraw from CLI?
The Add/Drop Deadline is at the end of the first day of class. You cannot change classes after that.
You can withdraw from class for the first half of the class. You will get a "W" on your transcript and no grade. No fees will be refunded.I
If I withdraw from CLI after the deadline, do I get a refund?...........NO.
All CLI fees are non-refundable.
