Admissions & Registration Deadlines

Failure to complete one or more of the requirements listed below by its deadline (“last day”) shown may delay your entry or reentry into DIU.

DIU practices “rolling admissions”, which allows students to apply for admission any time of the year and be considered for admission once all needed documents have been submitted. Deadlines are based on a student’s intended entry term at DIU.

An application or acceptance to DIU is generally considered “good” for the original intended term of entry and the following two years. If you find you cannot begin classes at DIU before this period ends, please contact DIU Admissions to ask if a new application will need to be submitted.

DIU Financial Aid runs on a cycle that begins with May term and ending with Spring semester the following year. Financial Aid applications or awards expire, if unused, at the end of each Financial Aid cycle. A new Financial Aid application is required to request aid for each Financial Aid cycle.

For all students NEW to Dallas International
