Steps for Returning Students

If you are interested in returning to studies at Dallas International, we look forward to welcoming you back! Please follow the steps below to reactivate your admissions status. Many returning students will not need to submit a new application.

Before doing anything else, please contact to indicate your intent to return. Admissions office staff will advise you through the re-entry process. Please do not fill out a new admission application unless you are instructed to do so. You should also take a moment to login to Campus Cafe and update your address, contact information, etc. Please contact if you need help with your Campus Cafe login.

Financial aid is awarded on a yearly basis. Students are expected to apply for aid for each award year. So, you will need to apply for financial aid unless you had previously been given an award that covers the term in which you intend to return. Visit our Financial Aid pages for more information.

Keep an eye on your DIU email for information about orientation dates, schedule, and other details.
