All CLI fees are non-refundable.
Why do I have to apply twice? Why do I have to send my transcript twice?..........TO SAVE APPLICANTS MONEY
CLI admissions is a two-stage process.
1: Students apply to the CLI department at ASU. There is no fee for applying to CLI. A transcript is required, but it can be unofficial, which is usually free.
2: If a student is accepted by CLI, they must then officially apply to ASU as a summer student. This involves an application fee and requires official transcripts.
This two-stage process is inconvenient, but it protects students from being charged an application fee before they know whether or not they are accepted into CLI.
