Undergraduate Cooperative Programs

Several schools partner with Dallas International University to offer specialized programs to their students, such as a minor in linguistics.  While programs vary from school to school, most require at least one semester of courses at DIU.  Most students will need to apply for Undergraduate Admission at DIU before taking these classes.  Registration requirements, financial aid, and how to pay varies from school to school. Students should consult with their academic advisors at both institutions prior to enrolling in classes at DIU.

Looking for another school? Many schools will allow you to transfer credit from DIU without a formal cooperative program.  When you talk to your college advisor, be sure to mention that DIU is fully accredited.
