U.S. Resident Class Options

Build Your English Skills!

U.S. residents are not required to maintain a full-time schedule. This allows for flexibility to select classes in target areas of English. Fees for resident students differ from international students. Purchase of UT Tyler's insurance is not required but is available upon request. Students will need to purchase books for each class they select to attend.

How to Apply

  • Select your classes using the IELI Class Registration form
    • Want to apply for a future session? Use this form and choose the session dates you want to attend here.
  • Complete the form, pay the $130 application fee (covers the document processing, records, language assessment and a tuition deposit), and submit it via email to ieli@uttyler.edu, or deliver it in person to us at 3620 Varsity Dr, Tyler, Texas. 

Applicants can expect a response within 2 to 3 business days from the time they submit their application and will receive notice of date and time for placement testing via email.

Additional Options

U.S. residents can join the Conversation Corner during fall and spring sessions, every Thursday in the Office of International Programs annex, from 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. This is more informal and does not require purchase of text books. 

Workshops and seminars are open to community members. Learn more by browsing Specialty Seminars
