Apply to IEP and an Academic Program

If you are interested in applying to an academic program at the University of Dayton but require English study, you should apply for conditional admission.

An applicant who is academically qualified but does not submit a TOEFL or IELTS score, or has submitted a TOEFL score below an 80 (Internet-based) or 550 (paper-based) or IELTS below 6.5, may be conditionally admitted to the University under an agreement that the student will attend our Intensive English Program (IEP).

The applicant will take a placement test to determine the appropriate level of current English language skills. These students will attend the University of Dayton's Intensive English Program on a full-time basis as a condition of their admission. After successfully completing the Intensive English Program or achieving the required TOEFL or IELTS score the student will be fully admitted to a University of Dayton undergraduate or graduate program.

If you submit one of the applications below, you do not need to submit a separate application to the Intensive English Program.
