Student Support & Activities

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 Administrative Office

The IEP office is located in the Rike Center, room 112. Students needing to request academic advising, tutoring place services and general information can visit us during our daily business hours.

Current and former 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. Students can choose to pick up these documents in the Rike Center, room 112, or have a PDF copy sent to a preferred email.

Academic and Non-Academic Advising

The IEP Student Advisor assists with students’ development as they progress through the IEP and helps students make the transition from IEP study to full-time academic study. The IEP Student Advisor is also available to meet with students to discuss their academic progress, to give advice, and to help students navigate the cultural and academic challenges they might experience in the United States. The IEP Student Advisor also advises students who are struggling to make progress and advance through the IEP.

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.


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.
