An undergraduate applicant who meets all academic requirements for admission to North Dakota State University (NDSU), except for the English proficiency level, is eligible for conditional admission. To be considered, an applicant must submit a separate Intensive English Language Program (IELP) application and application fee. All other application requirements on a student's online Applicant Profile can be submitted with those listed for the undergraduate application.
All documents are reviewed for conditional admission to the undergraduate program and enrollment in the IELP, for the student's first term at NDSU. The IELP will help to prepare students for full-time, university level coursework and provides the possiblity for students to enroll in IELP and academic coursework at the same time, depending on their proficiency level.
At the completion of each semester in the program or a qualifying score in the on-campus placement test, a student will be have the following options:
Be granted full undergraduate admission
Continue studying English for additional terms, with option of taking one academic course (additional costs apply)
A conditional admission offer may be deferred until a student's English proficiency level improves to meet North Dakota State University minimum standards for full admission.
Students who take a TOEFL or IELTS exam and receive a qualifying score, after receiving conditional admission to NDSU, may submit their official score report to NDSU International Admissions to update their eligibility. They will verify the exam results and notify the student of their eligibility to enroll in academic coursework for the next available semester start date.
