We make it easy to apply so you can focus on the hard stuff--like learning English.

Full Time Students:

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.

Selnate can consider applicants on a variety of visas.

Part-time Students:

According to current immigration policy, Selnate accepts students on other visas or who otherwise are able to study in a course incidental to their purpose of visit in the U.S.  Each applicant has their visa status checked and, if they are in status with a visa that permits at least part-time study, they are enrolled.  Part-time students may join full-time students in their classes on regularly scheduled start dates (blocks), but can stop coming anytime.  They are not issued Certificates of Completion, but may receive a Certificate of Participation for the hours they attend, provided they have at least 80% attendance and are making at least average progress (C average in all classes).  Part-time students must agree to the following terms:

  • Students joining classes part-time must not require an I-20, unless they are on approved vacation from their current school.
  • Student must understand clearly that if they are joining a semester in-progress, the teachers are not expected to repeat information already covered earlier in the program.
  • Selnate will strive to place each student in the level which best approximates his/her level at the time classes start, but class size and availability are also factors.
  • Student understands that classes run Monday-Thursday, except for holidays and breaks as shown on the current calendar.
  • Students generally must enter the US on an F-1 student visa if they are to study 18 hours per week or more.  Students entering on almost any other visa that permits part-time study are only eligible to study less than 18 hours per week as per immigration rules.
  • Unless noted otherwise, all paid students (regardless of visa and program type) are eligible to participate in weekly activities and may use computer lab without additional charge.
  • Once classes have begun, no refunds for tuition will be granted.
