Application and Registration

Application and Registration

Registration for SILMW courses commences in the Spring semester, typically in April. Please see the information below on how to register for Illinois and non-Illinois students.

Students from University of Illinois

UIUC students register online, using the university Registrar Portal, the same as during the academic year. UIUC students should use the University course registration resource and search for the course of their interest by language. For example, if you are interested in taking Arabic, the relevant SILMW course will be listed under 'Summer 2024' 'Arabic'. All languages have their own subject headings. Contact language specific instructors if you have difficulty registering for these classes. UIUC students should register for language classes in Summer I and Summer II by May 6, 2024.

In addition to the language courses, students must register for LING 110: Cultural Experiences of the Muslim World. Students must register for LING 110 alongside each language course they register for.

Program Registration deadline: May 6th, 2024.

SILMW courses open conditional on sufficient enrollment.

Students from Other Universities

If you are a student (or a prospective transfer student) who is not currently admitted into a degree program on the Urbana-Champaign campus, you are considered a non-degree student, and may register in off-campus, site-based and online course sections as a non-degree student. International students are welcome to apply as non-degree students to enroll in our language classes. Non-degree students may enroll in up to three course sections at a time. Please review the Registration Policies before proceeding. Non-degree students register here to enroll in SILMW courses. Registration for the Summer 2024 semester opens on April 18, 2024 @ 12pm CST.
