Suggested Summer Intensive Language Programs This list is provided in order to facilitate FLAS applicants’ searches for summer language programs that may meet US Department of Education (US/ED) requirements. Programs that appear on this list are not guaranteed to be approved. The CIE FLAS Coordinator will still be required to seek approval from US/ED. Moreover, some programs listed offer multiple program options which vary in intensity. US/ED requires that FLAS-eligible programs provide:
at least six weeks of study including:
at least 140 contact hours of language instruction at the intermediate (semesters 3/4) level; or
at least 120 contact hours of language instruction at the advanced (semesters 5+) level.
If you have any question whether a summer language program that you have selected will meet the US/ED requirements, please contact the Center for International Education (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Please note: Most programs listed are not UWM-sponsored programs and have application deadlines that differ from UWM’s study abroad deadlines. Please note application deadlines and visit the CIE Study Abroad Office in Garland Hall 138 to meet with a study abroad advisor as soon as you have identified your preferred program.
