Student Support and Activities

Students in the University of Dayton Intensive English Program receive support both in and out of the classroom. Opportunities to communicate with native U.S. speakers, including other University of Dayton students, are combined with activities on and off campus, providing many options for engaging in U.S. American culture.

IEP Tutoring Place

Tutoring is available for all registered IEP students. Working one-on-one with tutors, students learn and practice writing, reading and proofreading strategies as well as listening, speaking and vocabulary building strategies necessary for critical, college-level discourse. Students can choose to work individually with a tutor or together as small group members. Tutors can also answer clarifying questions about project instructions or other assignments for class.

Tutoring takes place in Rike Center Room 110 during the following times:

Mondays 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Tuesdays 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Wednesdays 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Thursdays 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Fridays Closed


One of the best ways to learn a second language is to practice it outside the classroom. To provide this opportunity, the Intensive English Program organizes social and cultural activities for current students. One of our most popular events is the monthly “First Fridays” tour, when students enjoy sampling arts, music, food and shopping in the heart of downtown Dayton. We invite U.S. students to join us and take advantage of these opportunities to expand their worldviews through building friendships with IEP students from all over the world. IEP students are also encouraged to participate in University of Dayton clubs, events and activities as full members of the campus community.

Requesting Documents from the IEP Office

Current IEP students often need to request documents from the Intensive English Program office. Our office can provide progress reports for a student’s government/embassy, recommendation letters for admission requirements, or copies of IEP graduation certificates. Students can choose to pick up these documents in the Rike Center, room 112, or have a PDF copy sent to a preferred email.
