Affiliates & Sponsors


An affiliate organization is a government or educational agency, school, university, or corporation that sends a group of students to study in a regular CESL program. Each affiliate provides financial support and full payment for their students. In order to encourage future placements, CESL offers tuition discounts and waivers to affiliates. The tuition discounts apply only to regular CESL program tuition and not customized programs. 

How it Works

Affiliates must make full payment and include a financial guarantee statement with their students' applications. The financial guarantee letter must have been issued in the last 6 months, be addressed to CESL-University of Arizona and include contact information (name, email, and telephone number).
