Admission Policies

Conditional Admission

Students applying to an undergraduate academic program who are unable to provide proof of English or are in need of English training, can apply for conditional admission. These students will be tested upon arrival on campus and will be required to enroll in intensive English courses as necessary.

An English placement exam will be administered upon arrival and students will be placed into appropriate levels in UNI’s Culture and Intensive English Program (CIEP). Students interested in conditional admission do not need to submit a separate application for CIEP, only the International Application for Admission. If admitted conditionally, our admission letter will state your bachelor’s degree major, but indicate that English language training will be provided on campus.

Conditionally admitted students can also choose to begin their studies in CIEP in the March or October intake. A complete schedule can be found at
