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.

To apply for conditional information to a bachelor's degree program, you must fulfill all undergraduate application requirements.

  • Fall: May 1
  • Spring: November 1
  • Summer: Case-by-case basis

We will continue to process complete applications received after the deadline; however, we cannot guarantee an admission decision will be reached in time to begin the desired term. All pending applications will automatically be considered for the next available term.

To apply for conditional information to a master's or doctoral degree program, you must fulfill all graduate application requirements.

Admission deadlines vary by program. Select your intended program and review the admission requirements to find the the admission deadline for your program.
