Dakota English Language Institute

The Dakota English Language Institute provides a high-level of English training for students who have a demonstrated understanding of the English language but aren't yet proficient enough for regular admission to Dakota State University.

The Institute is designed to help each student individually--classes are small so that you can focus on your own needs with the help of an experienced instructor.

Depending on your English skills, you may register for selected courses at DSU during your work at the Institute.

From the moment you are met by our friendly staff, you will feel a part of the DSU family. You are entitled to participate in all university activities. The dormitories (male, female, and coed), the food service, the Community Center and all computer labs are available to you. The International Club, a group of Americans and international students, will help you meet the rest of the campus family.

The town of Madison is the friendly and safe location of the Language Institute. The population of 6,000 has accommodated hundreds of international students over the years. Everyone has a friendly smile and a warm greeting.
