Tuition Prepayment Policy



Dear Applicant:

 

Students from the following countries have demonstrated a tendency to obtain TLC’s I-20, enter the United States, and not appear for instruction. To discourage such situations, the I-20 will be issued once initial fees and all required documents have been received. IMPORTANT: The acceptance letter and I-20 will note the total amount owed for one session’s tuition and applicable fees, and this amount will be due to the center within 10 days of the issuance of the student visa. If payment is not received by its due date, the I-20 will be cancelled.

 

To find out if tuition prepayment is required for your application (before applying), please email info@thelanguagecompany.com or contact the TLC center of your choice. 

 

The Tuition Prepayment Policy applies to all applications from the countries listed below, including those that come through a representative (this list is not complete). TLC reserves the right to require tuition prepayment from countries not previously serviced.

 

Transfer students: If you are from a country on the below list, but you are already studying in the U.S. and are transffering to TLC, we may be able to waive your tuition prepayment requirement if you are able to show a history of having made on-time payments at your previous institution.
