* The IEI is open to any student who has completed secondary school and is able to demonstrate sufficient financial support for study at the institute. Students who are over 16 and in good standing in secondary school are eligible with IEI Director approval.
* Admission to the IEI does not imply admission to any other school or program at the University of Maine. Qualified persons can apply to UMaine for conditional admission.
* Refund policy for a 7-8 week session: a full refund is available if a student notifies the IEI office of withdrawal before classes after the second week. If a student enters a session late or leaves a session early, there is no refund and the student is responsible for all course and student fees for the entire session.
* Students will be billed for one sessions course fees at a time. Payment can be made at the Bursar's office on campus. Payment is accepted by credit card, check, money order, or traveler's checks in the U.S. dollars only and may be made payable to the "University of Maine." Students will also be billed separately for UMaine Unified, Activity, Communication and Recreation Fees; and, if applicable, for housing, meal plan, medical insurance, personal club membership fees, and any subsequent sessions at the IEI. (Note: Students at IEI on an F-1 visa must be registered for full-time core program studies to avoid falling out of status and risking deportation.) Course dates and fees are subject to change at any time.
