Conditional Admission Application Procedures

Valparaiso University offers conditional admission to students who are academically eligible for admission, but do not meet the English language proficiency requirement.

Applicants who wish to begin their studies with English language training may first attend the INTERLINK Language Center on the Valparaiso University campus.  Students who successfully complete INTERLINK meet the English proficiency requirement for admission, and are not required to take the TOEFL, IELTS, or SAT examination.

To apply for conditional undergraduate admission, applicants need to do the following:

1.  Complete the Undergraduate Application.

2. Complete the INTERLINK Application.

3. Submit transcripts from secondary school (high school), and/or all colleges and universities attended.

Please visit the INTERLINK website to learn about their course schedule, tuition, and other information.  You may contact INTERLINK at

Please note:  Students offered conditional admission are issued the I-20 form from INTERLINK. Students must provide proof of financial support in order for the I-20 form to be issued.
