Who are members of NASILP?
Currently many universities, colleges, and schools in the United States are affiliated with the NASILP. Any academic institutions may apply for membership. Individual membership is also available.
What is the institutional membership fee?
$300 per year or $750 for three years. New membership is established for three years and later renewed at either rate.
How many students are engaged in the NASILP approach to language learning?
The number varies from term to term and differs for each member institution.
Do NASILP member schools offer academic credit for these courses?
Yes. Grades and academic credit are based on the assessment of an “outside examiner” from another institution. NASILP programs are virtually unique in providing external validation of students' performance.
Who directs the NASILP?
NASILP is administered by an Executive Director appointed by the Board of Directors and five Officers (President, Vice-President, Past-President, Secretary, and Treasurer). The Association’s day-to-day business is conducted through the Secretariat at the University of South Alabama.
Does NASILP receive financial support in addition to membership dues?
NASILP has received grant support for special projects from the U.S. Department of Education, the Japan Foundation, the Carnegie Foundation, and ARCO Corp. (Atlantic-Richfield).
Are there limitations to the NASILP format?
Yes. NASILP programs do not incorporate the study of literature and linguistics courses at the advanced undergraduate or graduate level.
