Course info for Summer Intensive TESOL Certificate:

Scholarships and group rates are available. Email Andrea at for more information & any questions you have regarding this program. We are trying to make as many scholarships available as possible to help offset the cost of the course ($2,400). Current Penn students, staff, and alumni are eligible for a small scholarship, and we are also offering $500 scholarships to current K-12 teachers who are paying out-of-pocket for the course. Additional aid, as well as a payment plan option, are also available to anyone experiencing economic hardship due to COVID19. We know these are weird times, and we want to lower the barrier to participation in this course as much as we can.

Early registration deadline: May 1
