To apply to an AALIM program, please complete the application below and send the link for the recommendation letters and evaluation form to two of your professors. If you are beginning your Arabic study at the 101-102 level, you need not submit the evaluation form. If you are beginning your Arabic study at the 201 level or higher, an evaluation form should be completed by your Arabic instructor in addition to a recommendation letter (you need to submit two recommendation letters and the evaluation).

Once accepted, you will receive additional forms to complete (such as medical clearance form, insurance form, emergency contact information, etc.). You will also receive a copy of the handbook, including important information about your study abroad program in Meknes and what to expect, from the climate to cultural questions. Please read this handbook carefully as it includes certain guidelines that you must follow while attending an AALIM program. AALIM staff and faculty are always available to answer questions, by phone or email. Our goal is to serve you in meeting your language acquisition and cultural enrichment goals.
