Enrollment for Minors

Students under 18 years of age are required to have parental permission to attend courses. Such permission is only considered granted when the parent completes registration. Course registration is done online by a parent or legal guardian only. 

Registration Fee

There is a $50.00 registration fee, which is required to attend any TLI course. Students returning to TLI after more than a 12-month absence must pay the registration fee again. We only accept check, debit card, credit card, or wire transfer.

Placement Test

New ESL, language and test preparation students must take a placement test.  This cost is included in the registration fee.   A student, who is absent for more than 6 months, must retake the placement test to re-enroll.  Any ESL level changes must take place within the first two weeks of any session and should be brought to the direct attention of the director.

Tuition Payment

All students must make the first tuition payment and register for a class by or on the first day of class. Students will not be allowed to enter or continue attending class until they have paid 100% of tuition. We only accept check, debit card, credit card, or wire transfer.
