Full Time Students:
Selnate International School will admit all students 18 or older by the first day of class who show a desire to learn and excel in English who meet applicable immigration policy for study to its’ Intensive English Language Program. Restrictions on admission may be applied if student enrollment for any one nationality exceeds 35%. In this case students will be admitted on a first come first serve basis.
