Registration for classes is on the first day of orientation, and payment must be made before you begin classes. Please be sure to apply for admission early—it may take some time for the U.S. Embassy to approve your visa.

Students applying for the second sessions may not apply for a degree program at the University of Oklahoma at the same time.

Applications will not be processed until the full amount has been paid in full. Application fee of $125.00 is non-refundable.   

Proof of denial of visa: Once the student submits an official letter of proof of visa denial and the visa appointment letter dated prior to the start of the session that they applied for, CESL will refund the $200.00 back to the credit card that was initially charged. Students must request the refund prior to the orientation start date for the session that the I-20 was issued.
