Language Support FAQ’s

To register for a language support course, use the online registration form. Please fill out the registration form completely and be sure to mark the courses you would like to take. You can select one or both course offerings. A UCAELI staff member will send out a follow-up email once your enrollment is complete.

Yes, but they are all fixable. Here are some common problems:

Student Account Holds

Please be aware of the holds on your student account. Various holds can be put on students’ accounts and prevent enrollment (i.e. Bursar Holds, Student Health Services Holds, etc.) We will be unable to enroll you if holds on your account exist, so be sure to check your Student Administration Account, as well as your email in case a UCAELI staff member contacts you about enrollment issues.

Scheduling Conflicts

Please check your current academic schedule. A scheduling or time conflict can happen if a language support course overlaps with one of your academic courses. If an overlap exists, you will need to get a letter from either the professor of your UCONN course saying that it is okay to leave the class early or a letter from your language support course instructor saying that it is okay to arrive to the class late. This letter should be brought to the Registrar’s Office to get the Time Conflict approved. Please notify a UCAELI staff member when there is a time conflict.

The deadline for language support course registration is the 10th day of the semester, which is also the Registrar’s Office Add/Drop class deadline. This date changes each semester so please check the Registrar’s Office for the exact date pertaining to the current session or email a UCAELI staff member.
Most of the time, UCAELI will follow UConn’s inclement weather announcements; therefore if UConn cancels class, UCAELI will also cancel class. However, sometimes UCAELI will cancel class when UConn does not so be sure to check your email for a potential message from your instructor or a UCAELI staff member during inclement weather situations. You can also check the class cancellation information at the Bulletin Board on the UCAELI main webpage.
If a class in cancelled, the instructor will inform you of the make-up procedure. Typically, the course will be extended by a week or two depending on the number of missed classes.
If you miss the first two weeks of a language support class without contacting your instructor, a student on the waiting list will take your spot. If you miss 3 classes, you may not be able to finish the class and the course fee won’t be refunded. Missed classes include regular class days and examination days.
Yes, a language support course can be cancelled if there is low enrollment. You will be notified if a class is cancelled for the semester by the 10th day, which is also the Registrar’s Office Add/Drop class deadline (see question about registration deadline for more information regarding the Registrar’s Office Add/Drop deadline).
The fee for UCAELI language support courses is $250. This fee will be posted on your fee bill. You can view your fee bill online with your Student Administration Account. You can pay online or at the Bursar’s office located in the Wilbur Cross Building (WCB and E9 on the UConn Campus Map).
