Embry-Riddle Language Institute
The Embry-Riddle Language Institute (ERLI) offers intensive English language programs. The Office of International and Graduate Admissions may offer conditional admission to applicants who meet all requirements for admission to undergraduate or graduate programs, but who have not achieved the level of English skill necessary for admission.
These conditionally accepted students must attend ERLI in at least the first semester of their degree program and continue until they have attained the required English proficiency.
Students who have not yet applied to a degree program may also apply directly to ERLI to study English by contacting ERLI at:
Note: Successful completion of ERLI prior to acceptance to a degree program does not guarantee admission to an Embry-Riddle degree program. All other requirements must also be met.
All students must complete a Medical Report Form and provide documented evidence of required immunizations for compliance with the University. Questions on health requirements, including important immunization information, can be answered by ERAU Health Services.
This information should be provided directly to:
Payment for tuition, fees, housing, and meals are due by the established due dates each semester. Acceptable methods of payment are credit cards and checks issued by a U.S. bank and made payable to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.
Other payment options are available through the student accounting department.
International students must pay a deposit of $200. This amount is applied directly to the student’s account and will be credited toward tuition.
International Students must have sufficient funds for their expenses during the entire period of study, including living costs, travel, and vacation. International Students will have the opportunity to seek part-time jobs on campus to supplement their income.
An Affidavit of Financial Support is required for all international students who will require an I-20 or DS-2019. In order to be considered a legal document, the Affidavit of Financial Support must be attested, notarized, or certified.
A bank or scholarship letter — no more than 6 months old and addressed to Embry-Riddle — is required. The letter must guarantee the availability of sufficient funds to cover tuition and fees, living expenses (room and board), books, medical insurance, and personal expenses for two semesters.
All flight students must provide Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Medical Certificate, Class I or II, at least 60 calendar days before the desired enrollment date. Students who do not have access to an FAA-approved physician may take this exam after arriving in the United States.
All students (international and domestic) enrolled in any flight program will be required to complete additional federal screening procedures.
A student whose attendance at Embry-Riddle was interrupted is required to apply for re-admission. You are considered a returning student if you have enrolled at another institution without prior written approval, have completed more than 18 semester hours at another institution, fail to enroll in at least one Embry-Riddle course in any two calendar years, or have been suspended from the University.
To be re-admitted, you must file a new application for admission with the Office of International & Graduate Admissions.
Applications will remain open for one year from the date received. After one year, all applicants are required to re-apply and re-submit all required documentation and meet the admissions criteria in effect at the time of reapplication.
