Distance Learning

SASLI will accept Distance Learning applications for the 2023 program.

There will be limited opportunities for distance learning for those with extenuating circumstances that prevent in-person attendance at SASLI. Students must be available for all hours of classroom instruction (8:30 am-1 pm, Central Standard Time, Monday through Friday for the duration of the summer program. Distance learners will need to meet all computer system and equipment requirements. 

Before applying, please read the Guidelines for Distance Learning at SASLI.

In addition to the general application form, you will be required to send SASLI a PDF of the following:

  • a statement, one page maximum, that addresses the medical, personal, family, professional, or other reasons why you are unable to travel to Madison for classes this summer and how you will ensure that you will be available at the given class times (8:30am-1pm Central Time, Monday-Friday) and be able to make time for sufficient homework/review (4-5 hours daily).
  •  a copy of your SASLI general application personal statement. We require this statement for both applications because the review processes are different.

Please note: SASLI courses are subject to cancellation based on student interest. Similarly, distance learning applications will be reviewed and decided on based on course availability. We encourage those interested in the distance learning option to reach out to the SASLI office early in the application cycle.

Inquiries regarding the possibility of participating in the Distance Learning Program should be directed to the SASLI office at sasli@lpo.wisc.edu.
